The Zanana enclosure is well maintained and even some preparations are going on for the coming Humpi festival. The construction is an example of the ancient sculpturings of the Vijayanagara kingdom which are to be seen by all .

This complex is a must visit in Hampi. It has the elephant stabes, as well as the lotus mahal. A great place to spend a couple of hours.

There are many things to see here. This is the area where Vijayanagara empires Ranies (queens) once lived. Don't miss to see Lotus mahal which is in perfect condition. Water pavilion and the palace basements of queens can also be seen here.
