sample paragraph Vijaya Nagara (Kannada: ವಿಜಯನಗರ) is in Bellary District, northern Karnataka. It is the name of the now-ruined capital city that surrounds modern-day Hampi, of the historic Vijayanagara empire which extended over the southern part of India.

In around 1500 Vijaynagar had 500,000 inhabitants, making it the second-largest city in the world after Beijing and more than twice the size of the biggest European city, Paris.[1] The ruins are now a World Heritage Site.

    Dear Sir,
    please add more details content is very less


    The Great Empire of Vijayanagara was from 1336-1678, from Harihara Raya to Sriranga Raya the 3rd. Some of the greatest Kings and Emperors ever ruled this Mighty Empire that led the Entire Kingdom to Prosper like never heard of before that time, starting the very first modern trade with Europeans and Middle East nations. The period from 1336 to 1565 and again from 1566 to 1620 are considered the best of all time for South and Western India. This one Hindu Kingdom literally kept 5 Muslim kingdoms – Golconda, Bidar, Bijapur, Berar, and Ahmadnagar – sleepless. Every underpinning of the modern amenities of this region including the rice growing rich alluvial agricultural lands of the deep south India were the great creation of The Vijayanagara rulers. The greatest period was from 1509-1529 under Sri Krishnadeva Raya. There were at least 7 other great kings who all kept the prosperity of the Kingdom alive against rampaging islamic marauders. Vijayanagara Rulers were the ones who setup the Nayaka Kings at Madurai and Thanjavur, who were later won over by the Valiant Marathas. The Vijayanagara rulers were an awesome inspiration to The Marathas who already shared the same disdain toward alien Muslim rulers.
