Picture Postcards: Graffiti in Hampi, India

Today’s Picture Postcards come to us from our contributor in India, Anuradha, who says this about Hampi:

It was once the capital of the erstwhile Vijayanagara Empire and was a hub of architecture and temple building. It was also a place which drew people, especially traders from all over the world. Today, all that is left of the great city is in ruins, but even they are so beautiful that one can just keep on looking at them!

You can read more about Hampi on her blog.
