Hampi is around 330km from Goa, make a highly worthwhile, and popular, side trip from the coast. Many of the temples and palaces in the city are World Heritage site. Main trade of the city is cotton and spice and these contribute to the city’s wealth. The site, which comprises the Sacred and Royal centres, has a superb location with rocky ridges and granite boulders acting as natural defences.
