After Art!

This almost dilapidated temple which stands at the heart of Hampi, the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire has still a few visitors.
The monolithic stone chariot being a masterly work of art and the temple 'Mandapa' with 56 musical pillars resonating to "Sa Re Ga Ma" of Indian classical music being an experience.
The fact is still puzzling as to how Sound could be programmed into a stone pillar in the 16th century, while the destroyed temple gate was proof enough that even art was programmed into every stone that went into building this huge temple complex.
