Stories of Hampi
Taking a time leap which is clearly experienced while travelling the place talks about the vijayanagar empire which flourished in its time to a great extent but came to a ruthless end when all of it was burnt to ground by the Deccan sultanates.The land which played a key role in Ramayana naturally had a lot of Vishnu worshipers, as Rama is considered an avatar of Vishnu .The Land had Vaishnavites and Shaivites which clearly propagated Hinduism was one of the reasons that it was burnt to ground after it lost the war against Deccan Sultanates.The royal center built during the times of Vijayanagar empire has hazar rama temple,narrating the stories of Ramayana,Mahanavmi dibba or the dassara dibba which was a viewing platform for the navratri celebration ,the pushkarni (stepwell)which is believed to be ahead of its time as it was built somewhere else and assembled in Hampi.It has very elaborate system of Aquaducts.The city in its planning and size reminded a Portuguese traveller named Domingo Paes of Rome.What fascinates me about such places is that they celebrated life and its simple pleasures .It's evident in the architecture that has been built in that place be it the queen's bath or the elephant's stable or the grand Virupaksha temple.It elevated the ordinary everyday activities,especially praying.It has played a key role in the development of Hinduism and its architecture.It is surprising to the people who visit the city that why is such a dead place now.Why has the place been abandoned ?...
