The rough guide for South India said - "it is one of the best sunrises in the world that you can see". I figured they would not have been wrong when I was there. We jumped up with excitement("look! look!!") once we saw a pink ball of mass rising slowly on the horizon. In the moments that followed, we witnessed spellbinding visuals of Sun rising beyond the waves of hills painted orange by the sunrays. The hills and rocks of Hampi synchronized with the Sun and formed a picture in our eyes that I would never forget.
