Imagine a tiny village if you will, surrounded by natural and historical beauty, towering over the village is a temple that has an uninterrupted history since the 7th Century. The surrounding area is extremely expansive serving as a natural fortress – giant boulders form mountains and walls throughout the city, filled in by lush green jungles and paddy fields, as far as the eye can see.
This is Hampi for me; small town, a temple village is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is the reason that got me to Hampi. You see, have a bucket list wish to visit and experience all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Even without the fascinating ruins, the natural beauty of this place is enough reason to make a trip to this place.
