Located in the central part of the state of Karnataka, in the southern part of India, Hampi is definitely one of the most interesting travel destinations on the map of India. It is famous for its ruins belonging to the erstwhile medieval Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar, now declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. The temples of Hampi, its monolithic sculptures and monuments are breathtaking. The Hindu style of architecture found at Hampi speaks of the splendor of the Vijayanagar Empire.
The volunteer projects in Hampi will primarily concentrate on the protection of the cultural heritage and the sites of historical importance and on creating awareness among the locals, school children, tour guides and the tourists. The volunteers will be involved in cleaning the heritage surroundings and planting trees, thereby converting dry areas into beautiful spots for an eye to rest on. The work will require a lot of creativity and motivation from the volunteers to convey the message through dramas, plays, puppet shows and other creative arts.
Project dates: August 12 - August 25, 2013
