History of the Hampi Utsav – Let’s see where it all
began!
 The marvelous festival celebrated in Hampi, Karnataka is a cultural extravaganza. Since
the Vijayanagar reign, the festival has been a part of the life of Hampi’s locals. With a
colorful and lively ambiance, the festival is conducive to an overflow of happiness and joy.
The festival is celebrated in the ruins of the ancient city of Hampi. The region relives the
past of the Vijayanagar Empire and its ancient and medieval grandeur during these three
days of celebration.
 Hampi is nestled at the banks of Tungabhadra River. It is 373 km from the Silicon Valley
of India, the technological hub Bangalore. Hampi served as the capital for the Vijayanagar
Empire, which was the 14th century’s most prosperous empire in the subcontinent. The
empire was a center of traditions, culture, as well as commerce and trade. The empire was
brought to its zenith by Krishnadeva Raya, Tuluva Dynasty’s famous ruler. With Beijing in
China being the largest city during the medieval era, Hampi followed it as a close second.
Celebrations during Hampi Utsav:
The festivities take place at the renowned Virupaksha Temple each year
in commemoration of the traditions and culture of a bygone era. The
intricately carved ruins of Hampi serve as the backdrop for the
festivities. Dance performances and folk songs are used to showcase
the rich culture of the region. A unique attraction you must not miss
during the celebrations is the Janapada Kalavahini. This is a concert of
folk songs and is highly entertaining.
In the present times, the Karnataka government organizes the Hampi Utsav in
order to attract tourists to this world heritage site. The festival does justice to
the magnificence of the region. In order to recreate celebrations that justify the
grandeur of the bygone era, many events like processions, drama, music and
dance are organized. Traditional craftsmen display leather puppets and vibrant
handicrafts similar to what was made during the past. Throughout the festival,
you can enjoy musical instruments like drums and pipes being played. The
streets are lined with decorated elephants and horses alongside men dressed and
standing under the white, green, blue and red cloth known as ‘Gopuras.’ They
showcase the Golden Era military fashion. Different venues are brought to life
with artists, dancers and vocalists entertaining the guests and tourists. The
festival also presents a great shopping experience especially for the women. A
light and sound show alongside the elephant march known as the ‘Jumbo
Savari’ is a delight to watch.
Hampi Utsav – Events, Schedule, and Program
Lists:
Hampi witnesses numerous festivals throughout the year due to its culturally rich history. Yet,
the Hampi Utsav is the grandest and biggest of all the festivals celebrated in the region.
Although the exact dates of the festival are not set, it has been celebrated in November since
the Vijayanagar reign. Also, the festivities also incorporate various elements in remembrance
of the grandeur of the empire and its reign.
 Jumbo Safari and Procession:
Informally known as the Jumbo Savari, an elephant procession marks the finale of the
festivities. It is carried out in remembrance of the grandeur of the empire and its rule. People
fly in and gather in large numbers to witness this procession. The same often causes
overcrowding in the small city of Hampi. The parade includes men on foot as well as
horsebacks, dressed as the soldiers of medieval times. The people have kept the former
grandeur alive in their hearts. They relive it in the form of festivities and celebrations. The
march is a product of the same.
 Janapada Kalavahini:
Folk songs are an essential element of the Hampi Utsav that cannot be missed. Performers
display great enthusiasm while entertaining guests and tourists. The folk song concert is more
popularly known as the Janapada Kalavahini. The songs are sung in the local language. Flutes and
pipes are the traditional instruments played. Another essential ingredient of the festivities is the
traditional folk dances of Karnataka.
 Puppet Shows and Fireworks:
Various locations witness puppet shows. These are a major form of entertainment for the
guests. The children especially enjoy these a lot. This art form is rarely found at other places in
India. During the festivities, fireworks light up the sky providing an extremely vibrant view
overhead. Another major attraction during the festivities is the light and sound show. It takes place
in the ruins of Hampi, taking the audience back in time to the golden days of the empire.
 Raja Marg:
The guardian shrine of the Vijayanagar Empire is at the Virupaksha Temple. The temple is
dedicated to a form of Lord Shiva known as Lord Virupaksha. The temple was enlarged during the
empire’s reign, though it had existed for a long time. Vijayanagara kings were the patrons of this
shrine. The road leading to the temple was hence named as the ‘Raja Marg.’ During the Hampi
Utsav, the road is adorned with lights and decorations as if in the welcome of a king.
Enjoy Adventure Sports during the Hampi Utsav:
The government of Karnataka organizes the Hampi festival. The aim is to increase tourism
and revenue in the state as well as relive the grandeur of the rich cultural history. In order to
utilize the commercialization and entertaining benefit of the Hampi Utsav to the fullest and
benefit the state on both the commercial and cultural fronts, the government keeps on
introducing new and exciting events to the festival. Recently, some rural native games, rock
climbing and water sports have found a place in the festivities of the Hampi Utsav.
Enjoy Shopping During the Celebrations:
Apart from enjoying the various performances, you may also indulge in shopping
during the festivities. Local craftsmen display traditional handicrafts. The ones
ranging back to the Vijayanagar Empire especially are a hit among tourists. You can

souvenirs.
