This is the best spot to catch the sunset in Hampi. From the top you can see Hampi city completely. You can see Hampi is like flintstone-peacfull-relax city. Somehow you can hear someone read the chanting and it sounds good for me.

Indeed a top listed spot in the itinerary with some spectacular view of the sunset and the sunrise. Located near to Virupaksha temple and requires a little effort to climb to the top but worth the energy spent.
