Glimpses Of Hampi – A Photo Essay

Hampi is a place for photographers. However, I’d like to admit that I didn’t find its landscapes and boulders any different from what I saw on the Hyderabad-Bangalore highway. Of course, the ancient ruins and the gentle Tungabhadra River do impress. But, it’s still a kind of place that grows on you. I’d say that Hampi demands slow travel. There is no need to tick off anything. Just wander on your own and discover the little spells of magic hidden away in the secret corners.

So, here comes the first set of pictures from Hampi -

The temples


The countryside


The river


The sunrise


The sunset


The moonlight


Did you enjoy the glimpses of Hampi?

  1. Beautiful pictures! I especially love the sunset photos. Did you take your photos all in one day or over a series of days? The lighting is really incredible, so I was curious!
