Hello kedarg6500
When you enter the Hampi, city people will surround you and try to sell the local Hampi Guide book. I was there last week, the book is very useful. Its got photo and gives you a brief idea of things with 48 pages, it has a map too. You can also hire a person to explain things. We managed to hear what the guide was telling other people and it was really fascinating. But if you want to get more deeper into the history only then buy the books you have selected. Even lonely planet is very useful. The best restaurant is Mango tree, we spend most of our afternoons there under the huge mango tree.
