Hampi, formerly known as Hampi Patana, is a historically rich village located in Karnataka, India. It is located on the banks of the river Tungabhadra in the southern part of the Deccan plateau. It is one of the most important historical sites in India and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.
Hampi has a long and ancient history, and its earliest settlers are believed to have lived as late as the Neolithic period. Evidence suggests that Neolithic artifacts have been unearthed from the area. As far as recorded history is concerned, the earliest settlers in Hampi were the Chalukyas. The first dynasty to rule here was called the Kadambas, and they reigned between 345 and 525 A.D. Around the middle of the 7th century, the Badami Chalukyas came to power and extended their rule over the region. During their rule, they created the Vitthala Temple complex, the Royal enclosure and other important structures which still exist today.
The golden age of Hampi began in the 14th century when the Vijayanagara Empire was established. During this period, the city became a great center of culture and learning, as well as an important hub of trade and commerce. The city was divided into different ‘bazaars’ such as the Mahanavami (the main street), the Guddada Bazar and the Kamala Bazaar. The Vijayanagara Empire was so prosperous that many foreign travellers recorded their awe when visiting the city for the first time.
The prosperity of the Vijayanagara Empire was short-lived, however, and the city was destroyed in the Battle of Talikota in 1565. Most of Hampi’s monuments were damaged or destroyed in the fight, and some monuments were even dismembered and rebuilding them became a herculean task. The city was relegated to ruins, and over time it became popularly known as ‘Hampi Patana’ (ruined city).
In the 19th century, the city started to be restored and its monuments were carefully repaired. In the later part of the century, it became a favorite tourist spot and continues to be so until today. It is now one of India’s most important Heritage sites and a popular tourist destination.
