Mahanami Dibba – Hampi
Built by king Krishnadevaraya to celebrate his victory over the rulers of Udayagiri, this is the Mahanami Dibba. Virupaksha, my guide told me that this is where the kings presided over a ceremony or a festival, especially during Navaratri . As this post coincides with Navratri, I couldnt but help wondering about the celebrations in that era. Climbing up, I saw the entire landscape of this forgotten town, lost in ruins. I took this picture when I was leaving the Royal Enclosure. It just made me think how we are so tiny and our achievements , even more insignificant and yet, we gloat over them. Even a mighty empire like Vijaynagar had to crumble one day.

There is a small Ganesha statue(its broken) nearby which produces different sound notes when struck by a coin.
Very impressive by all means!
Thanks for visiting …. Interesting post :o)
Its like a grand stage for world to remind past in future, and irreplaceable by none.
so true… its a pity that we cant even take care of, or even just let alone the achievements of those before us, while trying to flaunt our own!
Really amazing pic. I have been there couple of times but I havent got this perspective. Way to Go!
