Today was going to be a big day as we had to visit many places . We ordered some breakfast at the hotel and soon left the place . On the way we purchased some clothes which seemed very budget friendly. Soon we crossed the river , this day the water level was very much decreased and we could see the mantapas which otherwise would be immersed in the water . After crossing the river we visited Virupaksha temple and all other nearby temples and then spent some time on the hemakuta hill . We then visited the Ganesha temples (sasivekalu Ganesha ) . Then we visited Krishna market and pushkarni they were beautifully built . There were many temples on the hill and at other places but most of them didn't have any idols .
By the time we finished visiting temples on the hemakuta hill and it's surroundings it was already 1pm so we went decided to have lunch we searched for some restaurants in the market place and finally found Top secret restaurant (btw Top secret is the name of that restaurant). While having our lunch we came across a solo traveller with whom we had a pleasant conversation. After having lunch we rented a bike and soon left to visit stone chariot which was about 10 km from there . We parked our vehicle and had to walk for about a km to reach the temple where that stone chariot is placed . We could have travelled by the cabs there but the cue was too long so we decided to walk . On the way we came across few temples one of which had a sculpture of horse , very elegantly carved on the stone . Then we went to the small well which looks just like the pushkarni . After that we went to the most popular monument of Hampi ,the stone chariot . It was a bliss to watch the monuments , the carvings , the architecture was marvelous. But also the place was crowded and we had to wait for some time to get a picture of that chariot without being interfered by people . After spending some time there we left to visit the Queen's bath and elephants stable unfortunately they were already closed and we couldn't visit them. After that we went to visit some other monuments which were nearby . It was already 5.30 pm so we went back to the market and left the bike at the shop and walked to the bus stop .
Fortunately we reached the bus stop on time as the bus was about to leave .
In this way our 2nd day at Hampi ended .We have almost visited all the famous monuments and hills but also missed some of the important monuments too like the Queen's bath and elephants stable.
That was the end of our Hampi trip. It was really overwhelming and a joy to visit the temples and the ruins. I hope to visit it again and visit all the places which were left out this time .
