Stepped Water Tank, Vittala Temple, Hampi

The shot was taken at the stepped water tank near Vittala temple, Hampi. The shade around the tank is in ruins, roof of most part of the shade is gone. The four pillars at one end of the shade had no roof and they were making unique shadow patterns on the steps to the tank.

Very beautiful. I love seeing old ruins like this - it's one of the things I miss living in my area, everything's too new.

Are these not heritage sites under the care of Archaelogical Survey department?How can they be allowed to fall into ruins?

I am imagining as to these places would have looked during time when Hampi was the capital of Vijayanagara. Beautiful shot.
