Hampi (Hampe) is a village and temple town recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, listed as the Group of Monuments at Hampi in northern Karnataka, India. It is situated within the ruins of the city of Vijayanagara, the former capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. Predating the city of Vijayanagara, Hampi continues to be an important religious centre, housing the Virupaksha Temple and several other monuments belonging to the old city. Hampi is situated on the banks of the Tungabhadra River. It is 353 km from Bangalore. The extant monuments of Vijayanagara or Hampi can be divided into Religious, Civil & Military buildings. The Jain temples on Hemakuta hill, the two Devi shrines and some other structures in the Virupaksha temple complex predate the Vijayanagara Empire. Hampi tourism has special importance for the Hanuman devotees, as mythical Kishkinda, the monkey kingdom was located here. You can see plenty of motifs and carvings of Hanuman all around the sites of which some are brilliantly colourful.
We entered the Farm House at Tolkatta Village and occupied the Hall in the first floor. The view outside was beautiful from there. And as the watch ⌚ showed 09.45 AM we reached our Farm House. It was the season of mangoes and all around us we saw bunches and bunches of mangoes hanging on the trees.After chit chatting and relaxing for a while, we went to the garden full of Mango, Sapota and Jackfruit trees. Raw mango pieces sprinkled with Chilli powder and salt is something no one can resist. The whole day we spent at the farmhouse playing around the trees.
