The Monkey Kingdom- Hampi

Isn’t it unusual that a modern pub has a traditional look?

Well, the Gopalan Group is always known to blend tradition with modern and this time also it is no different.

Our brand new venture Three Monkeys- Micro Brewery, Grand Mercure, Gopalan Mall, is designed keeping the Hoysala Architecture in mind.

So, let’s take you down the mythological lane!!!

Kishkinda- The Mythical Monkey Kingdom in Hampi

Kishkinda, a very popular mythical story associates the landscape in Hampi with the Hindu epic Ramayana and some parts of Mahabharata as well. According to the mystical history, Kishkinda used to be the kingdom of the Vanara King, Sugreeva.

The Anjaneya Hill, located across the river Tungabhadra is the birth place of Lord Hanuman, the Monkey King.

It is said that when Ravana abducted Sita, lord Rama along with Lakshmana reached Hampi in search of her. Hanuman, the general of the monkey king Sugreeva mistook them to be spies from the rebel of Sugreeva. On hearing their story Hanuman brings them to Sugreeva. He eventually takes Rama and Lakshmana to a cave and shows them a set of jewels. Rama recognizes them as that of his wife Sita. Sugreeva then explains them that Sita dropped them at the site called Kishkinda when Ravana abducted her on his flying chariot.

On hearing this, Hanuman decides to fly to Lanka and comes back with the news that Sita indeed is in the custody of Ravana. Hanuman offers Rama with the help of his monkey army to make a bridge across and attack Lanka which eventually becomes a success.

Hampi probably has many more icons of Hanuman than any other Gods.

The temples in Hampi are generously curved with mythical themes. Because it was a Monkey’s Kingdom the images of monkeys are splendidly carved on the walls and pillars of the temples of Hampi.

Interesting, isn’t it?
