The Mighty Ruins
Khandhar bayaan karten hain kiimaarat kabhibuland thi ( The ruins bear witness that the building was once grand and magnificent)! If there is a set of ruins that encapsulates this thought, it is the ruins of the once- mighty Vijayanagar; or as we call it in modern India, Hampi. My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting this delightful place in northern Karnataka many years ago. We stayed in a nearby town called Hospet and drove to Hampi every day, taking in all the world-heritage sights. Fate has kept you alive so that you can visit Hampi before you die. Go there.
