Ramayana Tour

Stories of Kishkindha narrated by a local

How is Hampi connected to RAMAYANA? What were the places Prince Ram visited on journey? Where is the birth place of Hanuman?

Hampi and surrounding villages together are believed to be the Mythical Kingdom of Kishkinda mentioned in Ramayana. The Ramayana is an ancient Indian epic which follows Prince Rama’s quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana with the help of an army of forest-dwellers. In the fourth chapter of Ramayana, Rama arrives in Kishkinda in search of his abducted wife. On this tour we will hear the story as it happened here in Kishkinda after Rama’s arrival, as we visit important sites associated with Ramayana. If you enjoy storytelling and are seeking a deeper spiritual connection, then this is a great tour for you!
