  • A beautiful architectural example of ancient India. The structures are intricately carved and is a joy to walk around. Luckily there aren't much restrictions on places that you can enter so you can really explore. May get crowded during weekends, but that doesn't take away from the charm of the place. A must visit if in Hampi.
