Visit Lotus Palace

Hampi, a backpacker's paradise and at the same time a pilgrim's delight has successfully achieved a position in the list of UNESCO World heritage Sites, thanks to its rich architectural ruins and an all pervading historical charm. Out of its many charismatic ancestral remains, the Lotus Palace seems to occupy a distinguished position. This distinguished structure forms a part of the Zenana Mahal, that served as a secluded area for the women folks of the royal families of Viyajnagara Empire.

Hampi, a backpacker's paradise and at the same time a pilgrim's delight has successfully achieved a position in the list of UNESCO World heritage Sites, thanks to its rich architectural ruins and an all pervading historical charm. Out of its many charismatic ancestral remains, the Lotus Palace seems to occupy a distinguished position. This distinguished structure forms a part of the Zenana Mahal, that served as a secluded area for the women folks of the royal families of Viyajnagara Empire. One stunning feature of Lotus Palace is that it is one of those edifices of Hampi that remained undamaged during the siege of the city.

As the name suggests, the mustard coloured domed structure is designed in the form of a lotus bud. From foreigners to domestic tourists, all on their visit to Lotus Mahal are left in a state of awe by its lotus petal- shaped archways and lotus like pyramidal flowers. Few captivating sites of Lotus Mahal are:

  • a balance between Indian and Islamic style of architecture,
  • watch towers, and
  • a splendid use of lime mortar and brick made composition.
Lotus Mahal looks utterly spectacular under an illuminated sky at night. Its large lawn layered by green velvety grass give space to photograph some matchless brilliance of Hampi's ruined stories.
