Abstract

Vijayangara empire represented a magnificent epoch in the history of South India. The Ruins at Hampi, even in their desolate condition, give us a glimpse of the ancient grandeur of the capital. Travelers have described that the city had seven enclosures. The visitor comes across a number of gigantic ramparts, at times stretching across rocks and mountains, reminding one of the China Wall in miniature. At times the natural rocks themselves are used as parts of the fortification. The open space in between two rocks is filled by patches of walls made of huge boulders, cut into rectangular shapes. The lofty tower of Virupaksha, and those of the innumerable shrines, kissing the azure sky, whether from open plain or from the tops of hills like Hemakuta or Matanga, the broad street in front of the Virupaksha temple, flanked by rows of stone pavilions which once housed shops humming with activity, the Kamalamahal, the elephant stable, the platform going by the name Mahanavami Dibba and the remains of the once magnificent palaces, speak volumes of the glory and grandeur of one of the greatest cities of the contemporary world. The European travelers compared it to Rome. It looks as though it had a population of over one million in its hey days.
