For centuries, villagers living on the Tungabhadra at Hampi have crossed the water on circular coracles to reach their fields and banana groves. These ‘putti’ offer a dreamy way for visitors to explore the glassy river and environs, which look at their most magical around sunset, when pilgrims come for a ritual bathe. Among the most enigmatic sites along the rocky banks is a large, flat boulder carved with hundreds of little Shivalingams, where worshippers leave offerings.

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