Badami cave Tempples

Stunning stone carvings, Man made Caves. The level of understanding of art of sculpture, music and dance 1500 years ago is simply amazing.

If architecture interests you, please experience this place! Do take a guide and beware of monkeys. The sculptures , the caves take you back in time and let you destress

One has to visit here to understand what I'm saying. It's too good and a lovely experience. A lot of history and beauty put together. The only sad thing is that it has not been promoted like the rest of the heritage sites in the world. It's a lovely experience for children as well as adults.. Though there a steps... More

There are 4 cave temples belonging to 6th century of the Chalukya period. This is a protected monument. Nice carvings and relief pictures. In Cave 3 one can see remains of colouring on lurals/reliefs but now all faded/eroded.

Suggest to visit early morning for better and peaceful view. Tends to get very crowded towards evenings

The town of Badami itself doesn't look like much and is over-run with free-ranging pigs everywhere, but these caves are just gorgeous and not to be missed. Just wonderful!

The caves are really beautiful and kept in good condition. One must surely hire a guide to know the history and the details of the caves. The view of the Badami city and the Agastya lake from the top is really beautiful. Their is alwasy a breeze flowing around so the atmosphere is good. One can bargain with the guide... More
