Hampi
Founded in 1336 as Vijayanagar and already destroyed in 1565, only ruins remain from what was once one of the biggest cities in the world. The ruins are set in a weird boulder-strewn landscape and cover an area of 33 sq km. The Deccan sultans did their job thoroughly, so not much is left of the metropole described by Portugese travellers.
