My TripAdvisor Review No.166: Dasara Dibba, Hampi.

“Ceremonial Platform of the Royals.”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days agoNEW
This pyramidal platform, built by Krishnadevaraya in the memory of his conquest of Orissa, is located to the northeast of the Royal Enclosure. It rises to a height of 8 metres and has an area of 35 sq. metres.

The platform was used by the Royal family for important festivals like Dasara (also called Mahanavami). The embossed carvings on this platform are just like those in the Hazara Rama temple. Hunting scenes, dance postures and mythological carvings are the common themes.

After climbing onto the platform, one can tarry here for a while to take in the views of the Royal Enclosure and nearby monuments, and feel like a king surveying his grand kingdom.
