After the destruction of Vijayanagar in the 16th century, only a single clan of woodworkers survived from the legions of craftsmen who formerly plied their trades in the great capital. Their descendants still live in a village an hour’s drive away, where they sculpt little Hindu deities and children’s toys from local softwood, painted in traditional styles, including one with a beautiful metallic sheen. They’re lightweight and make perfect souvenirs.

You can add this experience to any tailor-made itinerary that includes a night in Hampi.
