It's a must visit place in Hampi. Although it's a religious place yet anybody can visit this place. From the top a lush green view of Hampi can be seen.

This temple is accessible though approx 350 steep stairs, therefore requires fitness, on the way you will meet extremely charming & heart winning monkeys, langoors. Once you reach top, bird's eye view is another astonishing & picturesque sight!
