The old walls: Part 1

A sudden and unplanned trip to Hampi was something that I will cherish forever. It was a desperate attempt to go somewhere with friends and Hampi happened because we couldn't manage any other place due to last moment planning. And trust me, it was worth, Hampi happening to me. Right from my first step to this small place that served as the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire, every part of this place have made me fall in love with it. Each piece of ruin stands for the grandeur and rich culture of the glorious empire that ruled India for more than 3 centuries. A mesmerized me, so overwhelmed with the trip and still admiring what my eyes could behold!
