Photographer's Note

Hampi is a ruined town full of monuments that were make with the local granite stones more than four centuries ago. The landscape in Hampi is very unique with thousands of huge round granite rocks. The Tungabhadra River irrigates the numerous banana fields.
Hampi village is popular with the backpacker’s community who likes to stay for weeks rather than days.
The isolation of the place together with the lack of big hotels and restaurant has allowed this peaceful village to escape mass tourist.
The Hampi's sunrises and sunsets are magic and one of the highlights to any visit to India.
The best way to see the ruins is walking or hiring a bicycle for the day. A visit to Anegondi and Monkey Temple at the other side of the river is highly recommended.
You can cross the river by taking a putti, which is a small circular basket sort of primitive boat that somehow can carry passengers, bicycle and even motorbikes without sinking.
