HAMPI is located within the ruins of Vijayanagara, the former capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. Predating the city of Vijayanagara, it continues to be an important religious centre, housing the Virupaksha Temple, as well as several other monuments belonging to the old city. (In Southern region of India you will find more temples then rest of India) The ruins are today protected by UNESCO World Heritage Site, listed as the Group of Monuments at Hampi. In Humpy you can see an impressive array of Vijayanagara coins on display at the Archeology museum in Hampi. Each coin on the display kiosk is provided with magnifying lenses to take a close look at both sides of the coin. (around goa)
