Intrigued after my recent visit to the magnificent ruins of Hampi, I purchased this book. It does a good job at describing the history, arts and the present ruins. 'Austere yet Grandiose' is a phrase that has been etched to my mind after read, followed by the visit of the ruins. This is definitely on the best book around about the ruins and the background of the famed city.

Recently visited Hampi and bought this book to get more details about this place. As I have compared the books out there, I found this book to be the best. Let the photos be it or the text be it, makes us to feel like living in there. What a great kingdom, am astonished the way the king has ruled this place. Well organised city. Pictures in this book are of great quality especially Alexander Greenlaw photographs are of great value to the collection to your library.
