A Hyderabad to Bidar road trip on our motorbike was the perfect way to indulge our love for travel and history while keeping our carbon footprint down.
While the majestic Virupaksha temple, and the Vitthala temple with its massive stone chariot and musical pillars, are probably on ever visitor’s itinerary, Hampi has a lot more to offer—regardless of the weather.
