Signs of destruction in Hampi

Hampi is scattererd with half burnt structures – buildings that were destroyed by invaders, leaving only a few traces behind as reminders of the glorious structures that once stood there. Posting some snapshots.

I have some more pictures of Temples, but I can’t seem to remember the name 🙂 Even so, posting them here (This may have been Varaha Temple, but I’m just guessing here). Hampi is a wonderful place and I would definitely like to go back there sometime.

Also posting photographs from the Zanana, which housed the women’s quarters (for all the king’s wives and her lady companions)
