Offline tickets to Hampi are now available for tourists. The tickets can be purchased at the Kamalapur Archaeological Museum, Vijaya Vithala Temple and the Kamal Mahal Memorial counter. The daily limit of 2000 tickets was also removed.
In the past few months the tickets were only available online in due to COVID-19. This was a problem since some parts of the site have poor mobile connectivity. There had been cases of visitors being forced to return without seeing the monuments. Some were also seen pleading with other tourists to receive the tickets on their emails in order to enter the temples.
Before the pandemic, about 4,000 tourists visited Hampi every month. But the numbers have drastically reduced in the last few months. Several local shops which offered bicycles, food and accommodation to visitors are shut due to poor tourist numbers.
