Vijaynagar kingdom, which flourished from 1336 to 1565 had a rich history and heritage. However, the war of Talikota brought an end to the golden age and immeasurable wealth was looted for six months.

Hampi, which was the medieval capital of the Vijaywada kingdom, was a unique confluence of art and science. In 1986, the UNESCO gave it the tag of a world heritage site. Photographer Devdutt Kashalikar gives us the opportunity to view this place of historical significance through his photographs, which will be displayed at PNG & Sons Store Art Gallery in Chinchwad, Pune.
