It felt a bit out of place with the entire ancient city at first. When we entered the market, we were in a place somewhat alienated to the whole journey. This place brought us to the colorful markets on the hills or a hippie hangout spots in Goa. It was strange, but somehow we found it quite comfortable to take a break here.

I don’t know what Hampi’s local cuisine was like. It’s something I regretted not having time to search for the authentic dishes of this charming old city. If you are looking for something like that, you will be disappointed here.
