Hampe and Vijayanagara
The modern and ancient village of Hampe is being confused in Wikipedia with the ruined city of Vijayanagara. Much of the content of this article belongs over in Vijayanagara. Imc 11:36, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Please Merge Hampi and Vijayanagara
Why have too pages for the same location. please merge these pages.
- They are not the same place, except to tourists. Hampi is only a village, near the original center of Vijayanagara. The ruins of Vijayanagara are a much bigger area, including at least both Hampi and Kamalapuram, let alone other nearby places such as Anegondi, and perhaps Hospet. Imc 16:56, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Hi, can someone add directions on 'How to get there'? That would be a good addition to this page. I've been there but that was years ago as a child. wildT 08:15, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Telugu is spoken in HAMPI
Hampi which is situated on the banks of the Tungabhadra River where It is 353km away from Bangalore, 254km from Bijapur and 74km away from Bellary. Hosapete, 13km away, is the nearest taluka headquarters. The main languages spoken there are Kannada and Telugu. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:14, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
ThungaBhadra was Pampa ?
Pampa river flows through Kerala. See Pampa River. The famous Sabarimala pilgrim center is also located on the shores of river Pampa. The name 'Sabari mala' is associated with the woman sage Shabari mentioned in Ramayan. While the place and the river exists in the same name as mentioned in Ramayan exists, the hypothesis that ThungaBhadra was Pampa and that the name Hampi derives from Pampa looks like too much of cutting the foot for the shoes.
Adding Video Content
I would like to add video footage of the following landmarks around Hampi. This video was taken as part of a documentary produced by the Global Lives Project:
Reworking of Article
- Hi Shrikant, I've reworked the article & restructured it into a more logical flow. Have also added citations & credible content in the Etymology & History sections, which were earlier written in a personal essay style. Am now working on the various sites & buildings in the historical zone. Am looking to add a clickable map here. Some help on that would be very useful. -Ambar (talk) 19:05, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
