Hampi Revisited.......

Exactly at the same time last year I went to Hampi .This time after a year at the same time I went to Hampi again.But I went on a road trip on my bike with 3 friends from here and we were joined by one more friend over there.

A huge wave of nostalgia hit me once I reached Hampi after a 400km ride.

1-----For starters Hampi is an ancient town filled with architectural ruins.Its surrounded bu huge rock formations and in the middle the small town had unending sets of ruined temples..Its almost deserted at this time of the year......
Some of the photos of the Hampi trip taken by me and my friends....


Stone Car

We crossed the windmills some 200kms before Hampi.

All these stone pillars were always on top of rocks.........


Blue skies,Ruined temples and emptiness is all that is left of Hampi now.....

@Mridula:Yeh on the way from Bangalore some 200-250 kms before reaching Hampi..

@merili:Yeh they teach us so much.And trye its a ancient civilization which flourished in the 11th century but modern day technology has managed to reach some 200 kms near the city to plant wind mills.

@Kris.Yup that was some incredible piece of architecture.The carvins are too intricate with a lot of details which cannot be captured in a photo.

@outdoor::I always loved the contrast of the rocks and the blue skies in Hampi.

@ash:Thanks madame.......
