One of our favorite places in India was discovering the temples of the ancient city of Hampi in Karnataka.
Dave was going through his photos of the Hampi ruins the other day, we decided that words just couldn’t do justice to this spectacular site. A photo lets you see just how spectacular Hampi is.
The Temples of Hampi Ruins
The city of Hampi is surrounded by incredible ruins and breathtaking scenery. What makes Hampi unique is that while it is a UNESCO world heritage site and the ruins are impressive, the people of the land live, breathe, and work among its walls.

It feels as though you have stepped back in time and are actually living as people lived hundreds of years ago.
The Bazaar is bustling, the square is filled with energy and people worship at the temple. Hampi is a must for anyone visiting India.
If you travel to India, be sure to visit Hampi in Karnataka, it was one of the most unique destinations we’ve visited and one of the best ancient cities we have been to on earth.
