Hampi: Royal Center

The second day in Hampi I saw the Royal Center, which includes several temples as well. It is where the Vijayanagar royals lived, as well as most of the townspeople.

I don't have the labels quite correct yet; I saw way too many things in one day, and it was a month ago. I'm still working on it.
