Hampi never fails to amaze me with its beauty. Each time I visit this beautiful City of ruins, it offers me a  visual treat enough to make me feel like coming back quite often. My last visit to this  locale was no different. This time around, I was in Hampi at the golden hour of sunset and happened to have a bird eye view of the  boulder strewn surroundings from the famous Matunga hills. Though I  could not capture the enchanting beauty of the sun kissed city with my DSLR camera ( Read, I forgot to take the battery of my new DSLR camera!!), I managed to click some decent pics with my Nexus 5 phone.
