Among them, there are innumerable buildings like temples, palaces, basements, water-ruins, old markets, royal pavilions, forts, strong rooms, treasury, and many other buildings. People of Hampi religion also lived in Vijayanagara and they also built Virupaksha Temple and many historical monuments in their empire.
