Once a splendid Indian metropolis, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi is a fabled lost city where the evocative ruins make the notions of fantasy come alive and unreal feel real.
The last capital of the erstwhile Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar Empire in Karnataka, the grandiose & often dramatic ruins of Hampi are known to have captured the imagination of travellers since time immemorial. In Hindu mythology, it was the monkey kingdom of Kishkinda where Lord Ram came in search of Sita. Its monolithic structures and monuments, gravity defying rocks & boulders, immaculately preserved 14-16th century stone temples and splendid wall frescoes that tell the legendary tale of Ramayana, whisper stories of its rich historical past and tempts you to discover more at every step. This luxury train journey to Hampi will be an unforgettable experience!
