Pile of Rocks – Hampi [look again !!!]

A visit to Hampi, the capital of the erstwhile Vijayanagar Empire, will surely transport anyone to the ambience of a golden age. If even at ruins this attracts so much of visitors from across the world, wow, how grand it would have been at its peak. The ruins even at the current state speak eloquently of the past glory. This probably is the ‘largest open-air museum in the world’ . With over 2,000-listed monuments and many more unlisted ones, scattered over 25-30 sq km, this has treasures around every nook and corner.

Today I present to you – pile of rocks from Hampi. Yeah even a pile of rocks from Hampi is so mesmerizing. Look closely to identify two Nandi hidden among the rocks. This is part of the small hill that you cross when taking the coracle ride along the river side ruins. If u know your way around with the coracle guys, you can get them to stop by for a small trek, at any of these places :)
