Sunrise by the stepped pushkarini

There are several pushkarinis (also called as kalyani) spread across Hampi. Some of these pushkarinis were related to the temples. Few larger ones were built for the general public. Some situated within the Royal Enclosure, like this were specially built for the members of the royal family of the Vijayanagara Empire. It was amazing to see how these stepped tanks were connected to an extensive network of stone aqueduct that provide fresh water from the nearby Tungabhadra River.

P.S : If you would like to see this with higher water level, check this out.

Absolutely Still

Sometimes – to take in all that life has to give – you just got to be still. Absolutely still.

Stagnation is dying, in many ways. But Stillness is beautiful. Especially when you are so with awareness of each breath & each fleeting moment. Here is one such fleeting moment of stillness from the the land where even the stones sing – Hampi :)
