Hampi isn’t nearly as well known as it ought to be! It was the capital of a great medieval civilisation, which, though abandoned, left behind a stunning heritage. Set aside the thousands of vividly colored boulders and fruit trees, this visual delight comes packaged with an entire set of unbeatable medieval architecture. It was once upon a time, in 1500, the second largest city in the world. The thriving, bustling city was torn down and razed by a combined attack from a number of Deccan sultanates. The city never recovered, and it’s lost glory is almost painful to witness. Most of the architecture is southern Hindu.
