Vijayanagara Temples—The very large and powerful empire of Vijayanagara was established in the ancient city of Vijayanagara (now called Hampi) in Karnataka in 1336. The monarchs of Vijayanagara contributed in no small measure to the development of temple art and architecture in South India. They drew upon the architectural plan of the temples of the Tamil country and constructed the beautiful temples in Hampi such as the Viṭṭhala temple, Acyutarāyā temple and the gopura of the Virupākṣa temple.Source: Shodhganga: The significance of the mūla-beras (history)
Vijayanagara Dynasty (AD 1336):—The last important phase of art in South India is a mingling of late Chalukya and late Chola art under the Vijayanagara monarchs. In the 14th century, the Vijayanagara empire was established. Krishnadevaraya (AD 1509-1529) was a patron of fine arts.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
