Hampi 2011

Among the many dynasties who ruled from south India, the Vijayanagara Empire deserves a special mention, not just for their great administrative capacity but for their effort in preserving and protecting the monuments in entire south India. The story of this empire is very inspiring in the way it originated which became one of the greatest dynasties in India at that point of time. If it wasn’t for the Vijayanagara Empire, one who cannot say what could have been the fate of the wonderful temples of Dakshina Bharatha. When you stand at the banks of Thungabatra, you automatically go back in time when the entire city was full of artists and artisans who were in a great penance in making the wonderful structures that we see in Hampi today.
