Being an architect It was a treat to visit the world famous archeological remains and complex in and around Hampi ;which was from long in my bucket list .
Hampi is the perfect place to explore your photography skills .
Hampi is famous for its ruins belonging to the medieval Hindu kingdom of Vijaynagar and it is declared a World Heritage site. The temples of Hampi, its monolithic sculptures and monuments, attract the traveler because of their excellent workmanship.
A visual treat, the landscape is filled with ancient granite rocks and boulders distributed in uniquely captivating patterns like artistic installations. Coupled with its beautiful temples and historic ruins, tourists often realize that seeing such tangible works of art right in front of them provokes a reaction and often triggers off their creativity.
It’s only a half hour journey from Hospet to Hampi. The route is quite scenic . It’s like entering the world of Flintstones. Hills made up of rocks. It’s like a kid has gathered some brown pebbles and made a pile in the middle of perfectly flat paddy fields. Some big rocks sit like as if they will topple even with a gentle push with your pinkie. But they are probably sitting like that for the past hundred thousand years!
