Hampi Visit - VI. Finale: II. Presto (in pictures)
From Lotus Mahal, we moved on to the near by elephant stables – a row of domed, cavernous cells constructed back to back.

ElephantStables

Each rock that is part of the Hazara Rama temple is engraved with a scene from Ramayana; which gives the temple its name (Hazara = 1,000).

Nearby was one of the most well known sights from Hampi (next only to the stone chariot perhaps) – the Communal Bath. Pyramids of schist steps on all four sides lead you down into a progressively narrower area. Descending into this structure is like descending into an open inverted pyramid

CommunalBath

Outside the temple is a seemingly endless row of primitive, squat, open structures. This was another of the erstwhile popular bazaars that now lie in complete ruins.

Thanks Manjusha! Though I don't think you would prod me towards an alternative career if you were to look at the pictures that I did not post (50 or so ;-)).

Thanks for dropping by Anita!

Thanks Avis! Oh you must!! Hampi is the veritable photographer's heaven!
