indiana jones says he wishes
to be a hindu prince

Strap on a pair of hiking boots and indulge your inner Indiana Jones with a visit to Hampi, India, a perfect escape from the hectic pace of nearby Bangalore. This easygoing village sits upon ruins dating back to the medieval Hindu Kingdom of Vijayanagar, and has recently been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These archeological wonders are scattered amidst millions of giant boulders, beckoning both hikers and history buffs.
