Aadhaar is now mandatory for visitors to enjoy the beauty of Hampi monuments. The central government has put up this rule to prevent the spread of corona by keeping a track of the visitors. Earlier, tickets were given to tourists locally. But now, E-Tickets are being offered online. Aadhaar card number should be entered while getting a ticket. Even the archaeological department personnel are required to show Aadhaar when visiting the monument.
Before the lockdown, Hampi had 600 to 1000 visitors a day. But now there are only 20 to 50 tourists per day.
Other general social distancing rules, masks and sanitizers are compulsory too.
