Give an account of the architecture of Hampt?

The architecture of Hampi was distinctive in several ways :

  • Hampi was a well-fortified city. No mortar or cementing agent was used in the construction of these walls. The technique followed was to wedge them together by inter-locking.
  • The buildings in the royal complex had splendid arches, domes and pillared halls with niches for holding sculptures.
  • They also had well-planned orchards and pleasure gardens with sculptural motifs such as the lotus and corbels.
