Sister Rocks and the surrounding rocks at Hampi
Sister rocks are the two giant rocks standing shoulder to shoulder and hence the name sister rocks. It attracts large crowds of visitors at Hampi
These rocks at Hampi were not connected with any cementing materials like the cement when the ancient temples and related structures were constructed. And it was thoughtful that Hampi was chosen as the site for the new capital city where rocks were abundantly available, using which structures could be built up. Huge and heavy blocks of rocks would have their standing unaffected in their own gravity.
Hampi, the UNESCO World Heritage Site was once the seat of the Hindu Kingdom Vijayanagara. It is situated on the southern bank of Tungabhadra River at Hospet village in Belleri district, Karnataka state, India.
