UNESCO World Heritage Site Hampi would soon have well equipped Battery Operated Buggy Trains to attract more tourists. The 3 coach pollution free train will have a capacity to carry 90 tourists at a time.
Tourist activities have slowly started picking up in the city, after a gap of almost 6 months. The Ballari District Administration and Hampi World Heritage Area Management Authority ( HWAMA ) took together a decision to increase the number of tourists by introducing better facilities.
The new train will cover important monuments, including Virupaksha Temple, Ugra Narasimha Temple, Sasivekalu Ganapati, Queens Bath & Lotus Temple. Visitors will have to buy a one day ticket and after that can hop from any point in Hampi.
Since the city is vast and has a large area to cover, several important monuments are given a miss by the visitors. In order to avoid this and enhance great tourist experience, Trackless Diesel Train Service will be launched either in the first or second week of November.
All precautionary measures will be taken and strictly followed as suggested by the Government while operating the train. Hampi has witnessed nearly 200 visitors during weekdays and more than 800 visitors during weekends post lockdown.
