Living in the city of Bangalore I made a mistake by not visitng Hampi before.I checked into one of the KSTDC tour for a few days which is called the NKT North Karnataka tour largely due to some last minute cue and I thought it propitious to go on the trip and never regret having taken the last minute decision and the things that I saw at some of these places left me in awe and spell-bound.Basically though we got to see many places Hampi and Gol Gombuz stand out and any person around the world cannot be forgiven for not visiting this place atleast once.
What is this place called Hampi? Hampi is a sub city in the overall design of the city called Vijayanagar.Where is Vijayanagar? Vijayanagar is an old time city like Bangalore which was the capital of the Vijayanagar kingdom.The city of Vijayanagar is some twenty kilometers in radius some fifteen kilometers from Hospet. Where is Hospet? Hospet is a modern day town in the so-called Hyderabad-Karnataka region adjacent to the Eastern Ghat Mountains.The bus from Bangalore goes along the Mumbai highway and turns right towards the Eastern Ghat mountains culminating in Hospet.
