  • Another must visit place at the ancient historic village hampi The elephant stable is magnificent in nature Its quite huge, and used for elephants Very well maintained, clean and neat That’s how a Indian heritage to be taken care The architecture is quite impressive The carving and the structures are of its own kind. There is a camel stable as well in the same premises don’t forget to watch it. Please try to visit before 6:00 pm And if you get lucky you could spot peacocks and pea hens roaming around
  • Olden day elephant parking structure 😅 (just kidding). This place is located inside the "Lotus temple", so follow the directions to reach here. Huge stable for elephants made with pure architectural intelligence, even they thought of giving the elephant a beautiful sunset view. One will definitely want to look into past to see this wonderful view. You can also enjoy the beautiful sunset from this stable and let your inner animal to enjoy the sunset. Cheer guys.!!🤟🏽🍻
