Now a tiny village in Karnataka, Hampi was once the proud and prosperous capital of the Vijaynagara kingdom. Designated a World heritage Site by the UNESCO, it is a hill-town full of romantic ruins and incredible greenery. At its peak, it was a city full of magnificent temples and palaces. Its grandeur was finally lost when it was attacked by the Mughals in the latter half of the 16th century.

Two brothers from the Sangama family, Harihara and Bukka, gave it the status of their capital in the year 1336 A.D. Over a period of 300 years, 23 kings ruled over this city. Hampi’s most celebrated ruler, Krishnadeva Raya, finally lost the city in 1564. Legend has it that such was its wealth that it took six months and thousand of elephants to carry the loot out.
