The history of the Vijayanagar Empire — and Hampi — is diverse, complex, and rife with brutal opportunism. This in-depth look at Vijayanagar Empire history brings to light a dramatic narrative that has been ignored for far too long. Starting from the beginning, we’ll go all the way through to Krishnadevaraya and Ramaraya, and that disastrous battle: Talikota.
Whether you’re visiting the UNESCO Heritage Site at Hampi, playing EU4, or just curious about this iconic empire, I hope you enjoy this exploration of the Rise and Fall of the Vijayanagar Empire. I have made efforts to offer a more nuanced overview than what can typically be found online.
