King’s Balance in Hampi is an ancient and rare balance scale. This rare balance scale is also known as Tula Bhara or Tula Purushadana. The King’s Balance was used in the 15thcentury. It has a fascinating history associated to it. The story goes that the balance was used by the kings of the Vijayanagara Empire on special occasions like the New Year’s Day, Coronation ceremony, solar or lunar eclipse, Dasara, etc. The king used to weigh himself with gold, silver, gems, precious stones and jewellery and give away those things to the priests of the temples in charity.
