I think it works the other way round. The water from ponds & rivers are channeled to fields via these conduits.

Will need a minimum of 15-20 days to do justice to the entire area

Wonderful travelogue, very lucid write-up and the icing on the cake are those awesome pictures. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking us through this historical marvel called "Hampi" . This travelogue wouldn't have been so engrossing if not for the historical tidbits that you have interspersed all throughout. Not sure when I would be lucky enough to visit this mesmerizing place.

All the pictures are simply stunning. If I have to pick one amongst the lot, then it has to be the "dying flame". So apt caption. Your love for driving and your better halves passion for photography maketh a super combo. Here's wishing you many more such opportunities to travel far & wide and treat us with such stupendous travelogues.

Words cant describe the majesty as well as despair that you feel when you look at this place.

You have done justice by sharing such detailed historical facts, I visited Hampi recently and I feel that the place has so much unexplored. Thanks for sharing the details and great photos, Below is the link to travelogue I wrote a few months back.

Looks good after the rains. Even in your pics, the tree in Vithala temple has hardly any leaves. Wonder what kind of tree it is.

Dear Members,

Planning to stay 3 nights at Hampi and Badami during April last week.

Considering the summers are really hot, Would it be practical to visit these places (temples) in early mornings or late evenings?

Please advise.

Rgds,
Vinod
