This temple is accessible though approx 350 steep stairs, therefore requires fitness, on the way you will meet extremely charming & heart winning monkeys, langoors. Once you reach top, bird's eye view is another astonishing & picturesque sight!

Climbed up the Anjaneya hills 500(+) stairs to visit sunrise..On top is Hamuman temple where you can visit and listen to morning aarti by priests. It has the most amazing 360 ° view of Hampi.. Saw lot of children learning Indian education and yoga which was refreshing..

Look where you are, did you wake up before sunrise to make the trek to the temple, you should. Wanting sunrise from this location is a special sacred location of the planet. The monkeys will climb on you, enjoy it. You will hear these awesome gunshots from the village below trying to scare the monkeys away from their homes. I... More

Firstly I enjoyed the drive to this place - a bit further afield than other temples I'd visited the day before and through lots of nice countryside. Stock up on drinks at one of the numerous stalls at the bottom. The climb up to the top was hard work in the heat, climbing 575 steps, but it was fun saying... More

It's a long walk up... Some 575 steps but it's doable and not so tough. Definitely carry a bottle of water and you can refill it when you get to the top. Keep climbing keep climbing don't give up. Then there's this place where you need to Crouch under a big rock and climb up.. I love such adventurous places.... More

We need to climb around 800 steps to reach the temple. The view during the climb is nice and we can watch the sunset from the hill. Nothing great to write about the hill except for the mythological context.
