Let's get back to posting pictures. Shall we?

I went for a movie today. Super casual.

This is saree #8 of the #100sareepact. 
I want to do this more often. I don't want to keep waiting for an occasion. Saree should be the norm. We can make it happen.

Also, coming up next, pictures from my travels of past two months.

P. S.: Please watch Nude the film. This thought provoking film is an  important one on a social as well as personal level. Language shouldn't be a barrier as this film has subtitles.

Ugra Narasimha

The statue of Ugra Narasimha, Hampi is 6.7 meters in height. The Ugra Narasimha at Hampi is placed on the top of the Hemkunta Hills.

This is one of the best monolithic statues of Hampi.

Temples of Hampi are interesting as almost none of them have statues of Gods. 
My favorite thing about exploring Hampi was to visualise how it would have been back then. Back when this was a flourishing kingdom. How all the people from the village would gather at the center to celebrate important festivals. Rallies of elephants and horses. I hope someday somebody makes a movie on Hampi and my visualizations can come true.

We extended our stay in Hampi to celebrate Holi.

Holi in Hampi is an improvised event as they have so many foreign tourists. But that works well. No #buranamanoholihai, no harassment!

Everybody was dancing on drums and coloring each other. It was so much fun. After noon everybody tried clean themselves in the river. The color stayed for more than a week, but the memories would stay for life.

Video of our celebration is on my dear friend, Fran's (@frantxu850), YouTube. Link in his bio.

The endless exploration of the ruins continued for a week

There's so much to see in Hampi. I think I'll keep visiting this place again and again.

View from the Anjaneya Hill

This hill in Hampi believed to be the birthplace of Lord Hanuman. 
The other side of the Hampi was a picturesque location with all the rice fields and coconut trees.

The Pushkaranis in Hampi are the sacred water tanks that are attached to the temples. Most of the major temples in Hampi have a pushkarani built near them. The pushkaranis were a prominent feature of the ruined town.

So many details in step wells.

Virupaksha Temple is the main center of pilgrimage at Hampi, and had been considered the most sacred sanctuary over the centuries. It is intact among the surrounding ruins and is still used in worship.

We saw a wedding ceremony happening inside the temple.

Hampi is a completely different world in itself. I had this place on my list for the longest time and I'd seen a lot of pictures of this place. But when I entered in here, it turned out to be beyond my imagination.

I cannot really explain in words the sheer scale of this place. You've to see it with your eyes. Wherever you put your eyes, you see big rocks and ruins.

I walk through these rice fields everyday.
