Today, your time is completely your own. Hampi was once the huge capital of the Vijaynagaran Empire, larger than Paris or London. One of the most famous ruins is the massive stone carriage that is parked in front of an impressive gallery of decorated pillars, each sculpted from a single block of stone. Alternatively, you can hire a bicycle to explore more of the ruins, or the colourful rural village scenes around your hotel.
This evening you’ll wave goodbye as you head off to Mysore on an overnight sleeper train.
