Day - 4 - Hampi
As usual, we started early and we decided start our day by visiting the Stone Chariot at Vittala Temple Campus. Boy, was it amazing to see this temple! We took the services of a professional guide and struck a deal with him to show us all major monuments at Hampi during the day (highly recommended).
The architecture and history behind the Vittala Temple is magnificent. Even after so many years, so many part of the temple are intact!

The rich history of Hampi and the sheer fact that there are so many ancient monuments (in great shape) at Hampi, makes it the Rome of India! This whole trip filled our hearts with happiness and unforgettable memories of these fantastic places. Next day, although very reluctantly, we had to go back to Bangalore and continue with our boring lives!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the glimpse of these places as much as I have enjoyed visiting them! Here are the links (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) to my previous posts that cover the entire series of North Karnataka - The Rome of India.
