Hampi, located approximately 350 KM from Bangalore in Karnataka, India, was the capital of the erstwhile Vijayanagara empire and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rainy season is the best time to visit Hampi, otherwise the site is literally too hot to handle. The weather gods were very obliging we had only light drizzles to trouble us.
Map courtsey hampi.in. We stayed at Priyadarshini hotel in Hospet, the biggest town near to Hampi and in 3 days, covered Hampi, Tungabadra Dam & Chitradurga Fort.
