“Impressive”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Certainly must have taken some very serious engineering skills to have brought these doors into position such that they could function in a useful and practical way. Look out for the doors lying on the ground as you enter the Royal Enclosure.

“Telltale signs of security in those days”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Well they're now just lying around and easy to miss unless you're really watchful or are with a guide. One can't do anything but marvel at the craftmanship on every aspect of the Vijayanagara empire. At best this is a magnificent relic to be kept inside a museum I'd have thought, and not an outdoor "attraction" really.

“Might not be the actual size”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

These are near the entrance of the Royal Enclosure. The doors are placed on the ground. The doors in the current shape are small and might not be of the actual size.

Reviewed 19 September 2013

seeing these huge doors gives you some perspective on the amazing amount of carved stone that Vijayanagara Kingdom must have had.
