Photographer's Note

Hampi, the seat of the viyanagara empire was the capital of the largest empire in post-mogul India, covering several states. The empire reigned supreme under Krishnadevaraya. The Vijayanagara empire stretched over at least three states - Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh. All thats left of this empire is the runis at Hampi. Hampi ruins are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The stone chariot here is of great fame. Its stone wheels, each shaped in the form of a lotus, are capable of revolving. Temple chariots are often mobile reproductions of a temple. The stone chariot here is in turn a static version of the mobile temple chariot. It represents the creativity of the sculptors.

The feel for the place can be had from the panorama from World heritage site.
