Historical Hampi

My friend and I drove down to Hampi during the last week as part of my short break 🙂

I will be posting my experiences out there on my travel blog.  But until then, here are some photographs representing the beautiful historic town. This is my second visit to this town after a gap of 10 years. It was a short but memorable visit.
