The landscape of Hampi in South India is one of the oldest in the world. Granite boulders of various sizes cover the entire area. These boulders contain a unique resonating quality, and in the 5th century AD many of them were selected, transported and used in the construction of the amazing Vitala temple, with its unique 215 musical pillars. The boulders in these pictures stand as potential musical structures, waiting to be played.
