Vijayanagara Emperor
The Vijayanagara Empire, referred to as the Kingdom of Bisnagar by the Portuguese, was an empire based in South India, in the Deccan Plateau region. It was established in 1336 by Harihara I and his brother Bukka Raya I of Sangama Dynasty. The empire rose to prominence as a culmination of attempts by the southern powers to ward off Islamic invasions by the end of the 13th century. It lasted until 1646 although its power declined after a major military defeat in 1565 by the Deccan sultanates. The empire is named after its capital city of Vijayanagara, whose ruins surround present day Hampi, now a World Heritage Site in Karnataka, India. The writings of medieval European travelers such as Domingo Paes, Fernão Nunes and Niccolò Da Conti, and the literature in local languages provide crucial information about its history. Archaeological excavations at Vijayanagara have revealed the empire's power and wealth.
The empire's legacy includes many monuments spread over South India, the best known of which is the group at Hampi. The previous temple building traditions in South India came together in the Vijayanagara Architecture style. The mingling of all faiths and vernaculars inspired architectural innovation of Hindu temple construction, first in the Deccan and later in the Dravidian idioms using the local granite. Efficient administration and vigorous overseas trade brought new technologies such as water management systems for irrigation. The empire's patronage enabled fine arts and literature to reach new heights in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Sanskrit, while Carnatic music evolved into its current form. The Vijayanagara Empire created an epoch in South Indian history that transcended regionalism by promoting Hinduism as a unifying factor.

Samyuktha Harshitha: Where is the throne of Vijayanagar
It is common knowledge that after the Battle of Talikota in 1565, the Muslim forces of the Deccan set upon Vijayanagar or Hampi and destroyed the city, burnt down the buildings and killed and looted people and their homes. The Muslim invaders carried back hundreds of tonnes of valuables, books, articles and even people as slaves. However, some part of the immense treasure of Vijayanagar was carted away to Penugonda by Tirumala Raya who made it the capital of Vijayanagar dynasty. However, some treasures still continue to elude discovery and it is a mystery what happened to them.
