Timeless Surviving Grandeur of Hampi

Hampi is an ancient village situated in Karnataka state of India. Geologically it is located in hilly terrain formed by granite boulders.

The name Humpi has evolved from word Pampa, the ancient name of the river Tungabhadra. Hindu puranas cite Pampa as a daughter of lord Brahma, the creator of this universe. Pampa was a devotee of Shiva, the God of Destruction. Shiva was extremely pleased by her dedication and offered her a boon, and she opted to marry him! The place thus came to be known as Pampakshetra (land of Pampa) and Shiva as Pampapathi (consort of Pampa).

Hampi is famous for its several time ravaged shrines carved in stone, and its nexus with the Vijayanagara Empire and its form of art. Hindu Virupaksha Temple is located on the south bank of the river Tungabhadra, close to the recovered Hampi Bazaar. A sculptured stone chariot is perched in front of the massive Vittala Temple site. There is much to explore, admire and wonder about….

This video is record of my travel to Hampi and its timeless grandeur as a ‘Forgotton Kingdom’.
