Shivavilas Palace

near Hampi, Karnataka

Shivavilas Palace lies in the heart of Sandur, a small town wedged between the low mountains of Bellary district, surrounded by lush countryside and deep green thickets.

It is most suited for Bangaloreans who have tried and tested the hippie-happy lanes of Hampi and now want to graduate to plusher accommodation.


How to get there:

By air:
Closest airport is Hubli (171km), but the most viable one is Bangalore (312km) with better connectivity to the major cities of India.

By train:
Major railway stations include Toranagallu (21 km), Hospet Junction(32 km) and Hubli Junction (171 km). Ask the hotel for pick-up (chargeable).

By road:
Overnight buses from Bangalore are available with private operators and the reliable state-run KSRTC service.


Distances & travel times:

airport: Hubli (3 hours), Bangalore (7 hours)

railway stations: 
Toranagallu 21 km (35 mins)
Hospet junction 32 km (45 mins)
Hubli junction 171 km ( 3 hours)

When to go:

Like the rest of Karnataka, the plains of Bellary can get extremely hot during March and April. The best time is at the end of the year, November through to February.

If you can, catch the two-day annual Hampi festival, which happens in late December or early January. Though the festival is tinged with a staid, manicured vibe, it’s a good time to get acquainted with folk arts of the state.


Getting around:

The only way to get around for sightseeing is in your own vehicle or a cab that can be arranged easily at an additional cost.
