Photographer's Note

Hampi, Hindistan'ın Karnataka eyaletinin kuzeyinde yer alan bir anıt tapınaklar Unesco dnya mirası şehri. Kendi dneminde dnyanın en zengin ve en byk kentlerinden biriymiş. Kuruluşu Milattan nce 3.yzyıla kadar dayanıyor, ama en parlak dnemi, Vijayanagara imparatorluğunun başkenti olan Vijayanagara şehrinin kurulması ile başlıyor. 1343'ten 1565'e kadar sren bu dnemde, blok kayalar, taşlardan oyma 輟k ilgin tapınakların inşası ger軻kleşiyor. Bu kalıntılar 1800 yılında Colin Mckenzie tarafından bulunuyor, ve o dnemden sonra da dini nemini srdrmeye devam ediyor. Fotoğraftaki taş araba tek başına bir bloktan oyulmuş olmasa da, 輟k byk bir ka bloktan oyulmuş ve dnemini temsil eden en nemli par軋lardan biri. İş輅lik ayrıntıları, oymacılık ustalığı son derece dikkat 軻kiyor.

Hampi (Hampe) is a village and temple town recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, listed as the Group of Monuments at Hampi in northern Karnataka, India. It was one of the richest and largest cities in the world during its prime. It is located within the ruins of the city of Vijayanagara, the former capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. Predating the city of Vijayanagara, Hampi continues to be an important religious centre, housing the Virupaksha Temple and several other monuments belonging to the old city. According to statistics of 2014, Hampi is the most searched historical place in Karnataka on Google.The empire boasted a massive army comprising close to two million men. In around 1500 AD Vijaynagar had about 500,000 inhabitants making it the second largest city in the world after Beijing and almost thrice the size of Paris. As for the photograph, the stone chariot is actually a shrine rather than being a car. It is located inside the Vittala Temple Campus, and it is said to contain once the Garuda statue, though it is empty now.The striking chariot is considered to be the most fascinating sculptural achievement of the Vijayanagara era.

This stunning structure of Hampi has become one of the most famous symbols of Karnataka Tourism. The structure is a huge attraction for the tourists and is often considered by the visitors as the highlight of their Hampi trail. The Stone Chariot at Hampi is one of the three famous stone chariots in India. The other two chariots are situated in Konark (Odissa) and Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu).
