Hampi was once the seat of the Vijayanagar Empire and a great centre of Hindu rule for 200 years from its foundation in 1336, although there may have been a settlement in the area as early as 1,000 years before then. The city was enormously wealthy, “greater than Rome”, with a market full of jewels and palaces plated with gold, having held a monopoly of trade in spices and cotton. It was very well fortified and defended by a large army. With the defeat in 1565 at Talikota at the hands of the Deccan Sultans, the city was largely destroyed.

Aihole – was the first Chalukyan capital, but the site was developed over a period of more than 600 years from the 6th century AD and includes important Rashtrakuta and Late Chalukyan temples, some dedicated to Jain divinities. It is widely regarded as the birthplace of Indian temple architectural styles, and the site of the first built temples, as distinct from those carved out of solid rock. Most of the temples were originally dedicated to Vishnu, though a number were subsequently converted into Saivite shrines.

Badami – occupies a dramatic site squeezed in a gorge between two high red sandstone hills. Once called ‘Vatapi’, after a demon, Badami was the Chalukyan capital from 543-757 AD. The ancient city has several Hindu and Jain temples and a Buddhist cave. For a short time the Chalukyas lost control of Badami to the Pallavas in the mid-7th century and were finally defeated by the Rashtrakutas.

The original construction was consecrated in 1541. Panaji was the first port of call for voyages from Lisbon, so Portuguese sailors would visit this church to give thanks for a safe crossing before continuing to Old Goa. Fontainhas & Sao Tome: Just west of the Ourem River, these old Portuguese districts are Panaji’s most interesting areas. The narrow cobbled streets, tiled buildings, shuttered windows and tiny overhanging balconies present an atmosphere more reminiscent of the Mediterranean than of India.
