Hampi, India


India is certainly one of my favourite destinations. Unfortunately I've never managed to visit the village of Hampi, but it is now definitely on my itinerary of places to visit.

Hampi was the capital of the last great Hindu Kingdom of Vijayanagar. In a spectacular natural setting, fabulously rich princes built Dravidian temples and palaces. So it isn't hard to see why it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site or why the Global Heritage Fund is so keen to conserve its history
