HOME About Sloth Bear ResortOn the banks of the River Tungabhadra is Hampi, an erstwhile seat of power and capital of the once mighty Vijayanagar Empire. Ruins of a lost empire and monuments that are still standing are a mute testimony of an era bygone. Musical pillars and the stone chariot at the Vittala Temple Complex and the renowned Virupaksha Temple that dominates the sky scape are some highlights of this rock-faced site where even stones spawn stories. Just 15 Km from Hampi is the Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary that boasts of a healthy population of sloth bears.
The rugged terrain is ideal for these animals that feed off wild fruits, termites and honey and take refuge in caves and crevices. The Sloth Bear Heritage Resort set in rustic natural environs adjoining the sanctuary strikes a chord with nature. At Hampi, one can taste a heady concoction of adventure and awe inspiring creations garnished with heritage trails and nature walks.
The resort would be an ideal base to discover the medieval ruins of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The heritage area is broadly classified into sacred Center, Royal Center, Urban Core and Suburban Sites. Badami, Aihole and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pattadakal can be conveniently visited over a day from our resort.
Anegundi, known as Kishkinda in the Ramayana, is located across the Tungabhadra River from Hampi. It is a well-preserved heritage village adorned with antiquated houses, aqueducts irrigating its paddy fields and a hospitable people ready to host visitors and share anecdotes and stories.
