Hampi had a complete aqueduct system. Archeologists followed the ruins of that and found this tank. Steps down into tank allow access.

Great design and pattern of the steps leading to the tank. Also enclosing the tank is a network of canals which supposedly used to carry water in the royal compound and enclosing area.
