Hazara Rama Temple remains a major attraction in Hospet. This pilgrimage site was earlier known with the name of ‘Hajana Rama’. It belongs to the 15th century and is a major wonder from the past. In the past, royal family used to dwell here. Visit here and enjoy sights of its external decorated walls. The temple is dedicated to Lord Rama and Lord Buddha and offers seamless solace.

Also visit Harihara in Hospet edging the banks of the Tungabhadra River. This lake is considered as holy by the pilgrims who visit here to take dip into its water to clean all their sins. The four feet high rising temple idol of Harihar represents both Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. It has a typical Hoysala style. There is also an Archaeological Museum here housing displays like historic wars, coins and manuscripts. Also visit Jogimatti in Harihara, the highest point from where you can catch glimpse of the Himavat Kedaya waterfall.

This is the best exemplar of ancient Hindu art and architecture. Visit here and learn some key facts about the Hindu empire of Vijayanagara. Here you can spot numerous skillfully designed temples, imperial palaces, waterside structures, ancient monuments and wonderful memorials.
