Posted by Team on: Dec 14, 2022

We can provide you with a compelling cause to visit Hampi if you're seeking for one. We advise you to attend the three-day Hampi Utsav to kick off your year in Hampi with lots of culture and pleasure. The UNESCO World Heritage Site's splendour can best be appreciated at the cultural event. According to reports, the three-day festival's tentative dates are January 27–29, 2023.

It is important to note that although the festival was originally scheduled to take place on January 7 and 8, the state administration has moved the dates to (probably) January 27–29. So make appropriate plans.

According to historical sources, Hampi Utsav is one of India's oldest cultural celebrations; it dates back to the Vijayanagara Empire. It is only fitting that the celebration still takes place in Hampi today, where we can still see the greatest of Vijayanagara's former splendour and magnificence.

Every year, the festival is celebrated with considerable fanfare, and you can anticipate no less in January. The Hampi Utsav will take place in Gayatri Peetha, Virupaksheshwara Temple, and Eduru Basavanna Temple, according to the festival organizers.

What to anticipate at the event?

I'll start with the festival's location, which should be evident. The festival is set against the Hampi UNESCO World Heritage Site. A number of significant monuments will be illuminated for the Hampi Utsav, along with an elephant parade, a kite festival, and, most notably, appearances by some of the most well-known and renowned traditional singers and dancers. The event is a photographer's paradise!
