Hampi, Karnataka

The ruins of Hampi with 83 monuments scattered over 26 sqkms; tourists are well known to cover this in one day!

My second visit to this great UN World Heritage site, I strolled around in my own pace. It seemed to me as if each corner beckoned me to have a good look. I roamed around in the ruins, one page at a time, devouring the details of the sculpted stones. Sipping tender coconut water I walked towards the western end of the site.


The Sun never pauses along its path, yet like a snail I moved on through the busy market lanes. Darkness waiting to takeover and at that final moment of the day I managed to capture the setting sun between the pillars. The fake sense of victory pleased me.
