Posting some last remaining photographs:
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)
Krishna temple was built by the king (Krishna Deva Raya) in 1513 AD to celebrate the conquest of the eastern kingdom of Udayagiri or Utkala (in the present day Oriya state)
Ugra Narasimha Statue is a statue of Laxmi Narasimha. The statue is carved out of a single block of stone. It is 6.7 meters in height. This statue is an example of the brilliant architectural expertise that flourished during the yesteryears in this south Indian kingdom.
The underground temple in Hampi is dedicated to Lord Siva and was built many meters below ground level.
