“Hampi heritage trip with our Archaeologist**

Join us in the search of “City of Victory,” that has entirely disappeared save for a few scattered ruins of buildings that were once temples or palaces, and for the long lines of massive walls that constituted its defences. Witness the history of a two and half century old legacy, an empire sprawling from Dhakan to Ceylon. A throwback in time in the capital city of Vijayanagar Empire without which an Indian History book would be incomplete. Please contact 7550042234 / keyterns@gmail.com to register.

    • “Last weekend gone for a one day tour to Mahabalipuram / Mamallapuram, an UNESCO Heritage Site, 7th Century Built monuments & temples. It was wonderfully organized by KeyTerns team Srini and Balaji. The trip was curated by Vijay, a young Archaeologist, who explained the Pallava kingdom history in-depth in an awesome way. Even though I have been to Mahabalipuram / Mamallapuram earlier, But this trip was quite different. It was highly informative and so entertaining, learned loads of historical information about the Pallava kingdom, Mythology and their mind-blowing architectural style. Thanks and kudos to Keyterns team. – Bala (http://casualwalker.com/pallava-kingdoms-mahabalipuram-mamallapuram-tour/)”
