When you are near or in Karnataka, Hampi serves as a treat to the eyes for a weekend getaway. The architectural ruins of the Vijayanagar empire truly deserves to become the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
HAMPI, a place famous for its ruins can be reached via train or bus from Bangalore. Stay at Hampi can be looked into after reaching there or can be booked online through many websites. The stay varies and can be as cheap as Rs 400 per night to Rs 1600 per night. I visited Hampi during the month of June (which is not a pleasant month to be there). The best time to visit Hampi is during Dussehra since it is celebrated in a grand way over there. Other than that one can also visit the place between October- February.
