Hampi being one of the UNESCO World heritage centers in India and situated in Karnataka, it was a must visit place for me in my life. But never made it to the place for many years with many false attempts. But this time I had made up mind to at least spend a weekend in the ruins, which was once an architectural marvel in the past. Once upon a time Hampi was the largest and richest cities of India, and still the stunning monuments here define the richness to visitors who visit Hampi even today.
We had our bus booked from Bangalore on Friday night and arrived by 8:00 a.m. at Hospet bus stop just 13 kms from Hampi and we had to take an auto rickshaw from Hospet to reach Hampi.
