+karun dawadi This is the website:
https://code.google.com/p/android-x86/downloads/detail?name=android-x86-4.3-20130725.iso&
Click on the File link. It may prompt you to enter security characters from a picture. Enter the characters displayed and the download will start automatically.

@HARVARD LOW: Thank you for commenting. The link provided above is the official link for the android build. Currently it seems as though they might be having technical issues with their website as I can not download from the link as well.

As soon as the link is back up I will let you know and not only that but I will create an alternative link so that this doesn't happen again.
