We spent a weekend trip to Hampi from Bangalore and it was worth every second and rupee! Rocks abound left and right, it almost felt like we were in a Flintstones set! The place suffered a bit from foot traffic, but most of the city has remained intact. It was quite awe-inducing to go around what once was one of... More
