Hampi – Vittala Bazaar

Vittala Bazaar is one of the most prominent markets of Hampi, Karnataka, in 15th / 16th centuries. 

1.1 km long bazar that’s 150 feet wide, is a magnificent one! The 

ruins of pavilions on both the sides reflects the grandeur and scale of the market that once stood here. 

Vittala temple is located on the west end of the bazar. And Gejjala Mantapa on the east end. Other monuments on the Bazar include Kudure Gombe Mantapa, Vittala Pushkarini, 3 step wells, and a few Mantapas. 

It’s a grand market place – an exploration by walk is recommended.
