A Walk Through Hampi

Hampi is a gorgeous village in North Karnataka located on the banks of the Tungabadra river. It is a UNESCO heritage site and a gorgeous place to photograph. It is always such a pleasure to go back to Hampi. Here are some pictures from my most recent trip.

  1. I visited Hampi (Hu or Ha, I dunno) ages ago with Arjun.. it was q uick day trip, and I instantly fell in love with it. I remember walking across fields to this cafe/restaurant situated on the banks of the river.. And the view was amazing. It was such an idyllic place, yet there was so much of culture and history in everything.
    I also remember the elephant in the temple who was chained.. Rani or Gayatri? Hmmmm… Was she around this time ?

  2. Forgot to write what I actually wanted to comment about: Super photos Pooja… Just super!

    1. Haha!!! Thanks Shruti! It is H’a’mpi. Thanks for pointing that out 🙂 (and I checked!)
      Hampi is absolutely wonderful for its history and architecture… And yes.. The funky cafes on the other side of the river. I had spent a lot of time there when I had gone last time. This time, unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time.
      The elephant is still there.. Didn’t find out her name tho 🙂

    Ah that ancient city whose bazaars were sold gems and precious stones just like they sell vegetables now..many a traveler like Fa Hien or Heun Tsang wrote about the wealth and the prosperity of the place and the times… and how well civilised and cultured were its citizens.. but alas its no more.. Who says that as time passes by things only improve.. I wish I had a time machine and could traverse in time to be a citizen of this place which was like Rome in its prime… The vandalised temples are speechless with the brutality that they’ve experienced by men, time and the changing world..their helpless expression is the only words that can be read from their bodies and faces …oh..
