Hotel Malligi Hospet – Good Stay It was during our Hampi tour we stayed in Hotel Malligi, Hospet. We booked our rooms through a third party App which was a great deal. Otherwise also, the room rates in Hotel Malligi are quite affordable. If I am not wrong, the rates started from 2.5k and above.
The giant Kadalekalu Ganesha at Hampi This giant statue of Kadalekalu Ganesha is in Hampi. You may wonder why the name Kadalekalu? The stomach of this Ganesha is carved in such a way that it resembles the horse gram (or Bengal gram) which is known as “kadalekalu” in Kannada language, hence the name Kadalekalu Ganesha.
The first and the most important structure to see in Hampi is the 7th century Virupaksha Temple considered to be the most sacred place.
