Hampe and Vijayanagara[edit]

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[edit]

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)

Directions request[edit]

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)

Photos and info on Hampi link[edit] meghamitra 07:46, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Some images in gallery are without caption[edit]

Can someone add the captions (other than trivial ones like 'Hampi' or 'Hampi temple')? Thanks. GDibyendu (talk) 07:21, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Telugu is spoken in HAMPI[edit]

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 (talk) 19:14, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

ThungaBhadra was Pampa ?[edit]

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.

Is there any reference, scripture that calls ThungaBhadra as Pampa? -- (talk) 16:35, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Adding Video Content[edit]

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:

sunrise point Hampi Bazaar

I would subclip the video down to about one minute. Jordanhkatz (talk) 20:31, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Reworking of Article[edit]

I believe the article needs lot of re-work and will be doing it, please also contribute and discuss here before to avoid edit wars . Shrikanthv (talk) 12:20, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

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)

Is Hampi the anglicised version of Hampe?[edit]

Give proper references to this statement. Hampi is a name of a village in northern Karnataka. People in the region do not use Kannada words as they are used in southern Karnataka (eg: northern Karnataka: eli, southern Karnataka: ele, English : leaf). Hampi has been pronounced as hum-pee from ages. Please don't make it a southern version. Krishnakulkarni36 (talk) 13:10, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Is the information under 'History' genuine?[edit]

The story of Gayathri Giri, Premla Tapoonia etc (under section 'History') seems to be fabricated. None of the books/websites about the history of Karnataka that I have referred till date talk about any of these people.

Are their any credible sources for this? If not, can the two paragraphs ("Kampili was said to have been founded by ... the king of Humanavarnam") be deleted from this article? Thanks in advance. Srimysore (talk) 09:10, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Merge and redirect proposal[edit]

Hampi is notable only as the core settlement of ancient and modern Vijayanagara. A separate article on Hampi can offer readers nothing that's not already better covered and contextualised (in greater detail, and with better sources) at the latter, and more generally at Vijayanagara Empire. This article should be merged with Vijayanagara, and "Hampi" should be a redirect to the same. Haploidavey (talk) 11:02, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
