Lost amidst history – A photo story on Hampi

Ruins of the Vijayanagar empire | Karnataka

This photo story is from my Bangalore days. When I was far, far away from home, friends and relatives and had nothing to do in the weekends. They say life gets so difficult when you are new to a city and all alone. I say it is your opportunity to explore the new places and to explore yourself. I used to pack my bag and leave home in search of new places, new people.

The Hampi trip was altogether a new experience for me. I had been to a lot of hill stations, seen many beaches, rivers, forests. Hampi was different. It was like landing up in history by time travel.

I have tried to capture some of the important sculptures in this story. My primary aim was to capture the architectural beauty of Hampi, the capital of Vijayanagar and the architectural relief of the 26km long ruins of the empire.

A profound land with so many temples and ruins of an age old empire, Hampi has withstood the ravages of time on the banks of the Tungabhadra River.
