The stepped tank of Hampi is a part of the royal enclosure but does not date back to the early Vijayanagar times. It emerged when the archeologists dug till the bottom for evidences and when water was found, the stepped tank was built all around and beautified.
This stepped tank is very different from all others in Hampi. This is made of complete black schist stone and is just so beautiful. It seems as if this stepped tank was built elsewhere and then later shifted to this place. Each brick here is earmarked. Some also have marks of designs made by the architect. The purpose of the tank is not known surely but it is possible that it was built to supply water during ceremonies and occasions in the royal family.
