[Album] Hampi - The Glory That Was (Part 1 - Pushkarini at Sri Krishna Temple)

"The city Bijanagar is such that the eye has not seen nor ear heard of any place resembling it upon the whole earth"

Hampi, a UNESCO world heritage site, is located on the banks of Tungabhadra river near Hospet, Karnataka, India. Hampi has received global recognition with its austere and grandiose temple complexes, exceptional architecture, art, planning and design. The history of Hampi, its beautiful monuments and breathtaking scenery are a few of the many reasons why one must visit this historically rich temple town.

They say every ruin and boulder in this 700-800 year old city has a story to tell. The visitors feel as if the ruins were mutely urging them to visualise the grandeur that went with the Vijayanagara empire, the florid magnificence when this splendid city with its broad bazaars and squares teemed with wealthy and industrious population,  bustling crowds buying and selling precious stones, corals and silk brocades, and then the tragedy, destruction, pillaging and massacre it faced in the hands of invaders. True, the ruins of once flourishing Vijayanagara empire stand mute testimony to an era that represented the best of Indian heritage.

This is the first thread in a series on Hampi. I could not cover all the ruins of Hampi during my last visit. I am hoping to do it in my next visit or someone else to do that. Here are some of the photographs for your appreciation. All the pictures are taken in HDR mode with my Redmi Note 3 stock camera.
