Sivu 28

We head back through the village of Anegundi, scattering hens and goats, and leave our bicycles at the foot of the stairway that leads to the rocky summit of Anjaneya's hill crowned by the whitewashed Hanuman temple. There are temples dedicated to the monkey god all over India, but according to Hindu mythology, this one marks Hanuman's birthplace. Appropriately, grey langurs patrol the hilltop and rock-faces, intent on inspecting tourist backpacks for snacks. We leave our sandals near the temple entrance and explore the hilltop barefooted. As the sun sinks it casts a pink glow across the endless ridges of granite boulders, onto the toy-like ruins in the valley and through the wisps of smoke on the banks of the silver river below. It is a fittingly meditative end to the day in one of India's most spiritually significant spots. FINNAIR FLIES nonstop to Delhi six times a week. Hampi's temples are places of pilgrimage for Indian Hindus but less well known among western tourists. ENG 28 BLUE WINGS FEBRUARY 2012
