Amid the astounding ruins of Hampi.
The Vijayanagara ruins in Hampi have been deemed a World Heritage Site. I went there in 2007 before grand plans were unveiled to transform the area into a tourist zoo.
This shrine cut into rock is at the Malayavanta Raghunath temple. Notice the parakeet in the third photo.
The first picture is a beauty Dr. Rajan. You might have more pictures of the spectacular ruins from that trip.
