Hills of bare rock rise beside the swift Tungabhadra River as it swirls and curves through a barren landscape strewn with giant boulders. In this daunting terrain, many centuries ago, rose a magnificent medieval city that rivalled the most famous cites of the world- the imperial Capial of Vijayanagar Kingdome “Hampi”. “The City carved in Stones”.
Hampi’s Mythological Pouranic dimensions appear to lie beyond the categories of historical times. The typical modern history of Hampi starts with a folklore. Two local Chieftains, Hakka & Bukka, reports to their Guru an unusual sight they saw during a hunting expedition. A Hare chased by their Hound suddenly turns courageous and start chasing the Hound. Sri Vidyaranya, The Guru, tells them that the place is very special and asks them to establish their local Capital at this place. The seed of an Empire was sown.
