Humpi, like Tenambakkam and Satara, is another important place where Periyava stayed for quite some time and gave darshan to so many people. We have read so many articles related to Humpi.
One of our readers, Sri Venkatesh, apparently visited Humpi and had taken photos of places where Periyava stayed in those days. It seems that Venkatesh is a meticulous planner – he had done enough homework before visiting that place and was able to see those great places and took photos to share with us. I have seen similar places that Periyava stayed during His yatra from Sri Ganesa Sarmaji’s photo album. In many places, they have demolished the old structure and built some commercial complex or something else…Many places are gone – not all!
Thanks to Venkatesh for giving us/me an opportunity to see these places virtually!
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!

amazing. If we can get the contact of Sri.Venkatesh, we will be able to get details of how to visit these places. His photographs and indepth research has kindled a longing in us to visit the place . could you please help get the contact. Thanks.
Hampi. Known as Kishkindha of Hanumar and Sugreeva and Vaali. Huge standing monolitihic rocks, tumbled boulders, dark caves, rich, green swathes of crops, their feet washed by the sacred ThungaBhadhra Nadhi. Sri Raama and Lakshmana walked here. Hoary Jaambavan gave advice here. Now made Pavithram with the footfalls of Periavaal.
Everyone who can must visit this place, not as a destination on the tourist brochure, but as a Punya Kshethram. A kshethram that gave birth to the grand Vijayanagara Raayar Empire that kept at bay and the destructive tornado of the Islamic hordes. And gave the wondrous Raayar Gopurams to our sacred temples from KanyaKumari to Mangalapura (Hyderabad) and beyond.
Absolutely striking photos. Thank you so much for this post. Now I have pictures to show my little grandchildren when I tell them the story of Aanjaneyar.
Hara sankara jaya jaya sankara. Thanks for your nice photos of Humpi particularly where our Mahaperiyava stayed. Scenic beauty too besides divinity.
What Punya we had, to have Darshan of these! Maha Periva blessings!
Jaya Jaya Shankara………… Hara Hara Shankara…………….
What a holy and serene place which only Mahaperiyavaa could identify. Such places are worth visiting to get ourselves sanctified. Thanks.
