Back of the Blog - Sculptural marvels in Badami

Back of the blog. Here we will share tit-bits and snippets on India Travel which may be useful for a traveller in India. It may be some new information about the place, a new cuisine one can explore, a bit of history, a funny anecdote or a good travel book. Anything connected to Travel in India.

Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal in the state of Karnataka in South India is a marvelous heritage of cave temples, outstanding Chalukyan temples, and great sculptures. I chanced upon these pictures from our album which are nothing but the finest form of art and embodiment of the finest form of sculpture in Badami. Take a look at he panoramic view of Bhoothanatha temple from the top of the hill. The setting is just beautiful!
