Ballari district to lose UNESCO heritage site Hampi after bifurcation


Team Udayavani, Nov 28, 2020, 8:50 AM IST

Bengaluru: With the Karnataka cabinet formalizing the formation of the 31st district, the new Ballari district will no longer be on the world map of tourism as the Unesco World Heritage site Hampi, the capital of the Vijayanagara empire, will be part of Vijaynagara, the new district.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi, Karnataka’s signature cultural heritage site situated on the bank of river Tungabhadra that attracts thousands of history and culture enthusiasts from across the globe every year, will soon be part of Vijayanagara district.

Besides, Hampi, Ballari will also lose the Tungabhadra reservoir, one of the major irrigation projects and tourist destinations in the state.

Ballari will also lose many prominent educational institutions, as Hospet has long been an education hub not only for the undivided district but also neighboring districts like Koppal and part of Raichur districts.
