Vijayanagar.

1565: “The city was pillaged, looted and burnt for six months after the war, then abandoned as ruins, which are now called the Group of Monuments at Hampi.”

It was never reoccupied.

Literal, actual Scorched Earth.

Total population loss as far as I know. I learned about it on a video of “world cities”. This single battle knocked this whole city off the map.
