Hampi is a historic site in the Indian state of Karnataka. From around 1343 to 1565, Hampi was the capital of the Kingdom of Vijayanagar. At the height of its power, Vijayanagar, believed to be the last great Hindu empire, controlled almost all of southern India. Its capital is said to have had around 200,000, according to other estimates, even 500,000 inhabitants during the heyday. Today Hampi is only a village with 2134 inhabitants (2001 census). Hampi has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986.
