In the mid November with my travel partner Mr. Srinivas Prasad, I planned our heritage trip to City of Ruins & capital of the Vijayanagar Empire – Hampi.
Hampi is situated on the bank of river Tungabadra, located near Hospet town in the Karnataka state, India.
Hampi is known for its beautiful temples, ruins of palaces, remains of aquatic structures, ancient market streets, royal pavilions, bastions, royal platforms, treasury buildings... the list is virtually interminable. Hampi is a hitchhiker's paradise as well as pilgrim's pleasure.
Hampi is well connected with train as well as buses. Hospet Junction railway station, located about 13km from Hampi.
