Tungabhadra: Bridge over the Styx and fountains of everlasting youth

Jitaditya Narzary

Is a traveller disillusioned by the familiar and fascinated with the unknown... and of course the founder of this blog.

As a side dish to my Hampi trip, I visited the Tungabhadra reservoir and a park build within the complex that are fitted colorful fountains. It was not a very exciting proposition to begin with but I wanted to capture some good night shots and hence decided to go ahead with it. It was already dark when I reached and I was greeted with a very eerie sight. It felt like the Styx with a bridge build over it instead of Charon’s boat. I noticed a sinful couple being eaten away by locusts of the nether world.

I somehow crossed the bridge and thankfully rest of the area was more colorful and less intimidating as you can see for yourself.
