The Frangipani Tree & Temple in Hampi Karnataka: February 2021 Wallpaper Calendar This post is about the February 2021 Wallpaper calendar featuring a small hilltop temple in Hampi Karnataka. Now I have not traveled in 2020, so I wanted to cancel the 2020 Calendar and calendar contest as I did not have any recent pictures to share on the monthly calendar.
