Temple with an elephant

One of the main attractions in #hampi, Virupaksha temple is still in use for religious ceremonies. The old structure has tall gates and many idols. The main attraction is the freely roaming elephant inside the temple which gives you blessings (I think for a fee of ten rupees or something). The t...

Mathanga Hill

Mathanga Hill is the go to sunset and sunrise point of Hampi. So we went there twice in the five days we were jn Hampi. The sunset was magnificent with a 360 degree view of Hampi and its ruins, and with the hills with rounded boulders in every corner. Climbing up and down is a bit adventurous a...

The coolest part about Senpar lake is cliff jumping!! To reach here from the central portion of Hampi, you will have to motorbike for over an hour through a scenic route.

They also have a toy train that runs in circles through the museum that you could ride on. One of t...

Mysuru Sand Sculpture Museum

I was expecting this to be a huge museum in a large warehouse but turns out that it is very small and hosted inside a patchwork shed. The skill of the artist is really to be admired but the visit left a bad taste on mouth when the vendors around the museum tried every tactics to buy stuff. Also ...
