Hampi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, former capital of the Vijayanagar Empire, is situated in the northern part of Karnataka. It is built on the banks of Tungabhadra river and majority of the monuments are ruined due to war. The boulders and the giant rocks attracted me ever since I saw a documentary on some travel channel. I never gave a serious thought to visiting Hampi, until Meena, whom I met on a trek, messaged me one fine day. A general chat that started with “How are you doing?” ended with “Lets go to Hampi”. The very next day I spoke to Neha, my office buddy, and the glitter in her eyes was more than enough for me to roger that she is in. I read a few blogs but could not find all the information I needed and it was enough motivation for me to write this one.
