Explore the Ancient Temples of Hampi

Hampi, the city of ruins is a UNESCO World Heritage Site owing to the ancient temples, forts and other monuments. Hampi is India's answer to its culture-rich Chilean equivalent, Machu Picchu. December happens to be one of the best months to explore Hampi although the daytime is still sunny while evenings are pleasant. The Vittala Temple is famous for the musical pillars, also known as SAREGAMA pillars, indicating the musical notes emitted by them when the pillars are tapped gently. Hampi is best suited to those who are architectural explorers and crave for photography.

    Thank you ever so much for a pleasant and memorable holiday to Hampi, Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal. It was superbly well-managed and co-ordinated by Riti. I have the greatest respect for Riti's calm, soft-spoken demeanour and yet being totally observant and involved, and managing so many aspects of our trip so effortlessly.

    Hi Riti! As always thank you for an amazing trip. Your love and care for every wanderer is so heartfelt that you are truly deserving of the terms 'buddy' and I know that every person on the trip feels like they've found a buddy for life in you.
    And as for the itinerary, it was splendid, the high-points for me being the coracle ride and the visit to Badami (all those monolithic temples & structures were stunning). I was also highly impressed with both our local guides through the trip - their sheer enthusiasm and love for their hometown propelled them to disseminate so much historical and geographical information that I wish I could've been taught in school by them....
    Thanks again for the lovely memories and for helping create that environment where our whole group could bond, and how !!! Here's to my fellow wanderers.... may wanderlust never leave our hearts & souls !!!
