The caves dating back to 1st or 2nd century have been preserved well. The carving of Ananthapadmanabha Swamy is wonderful. The pancha rishis add a lot of fervor. The entire structure has been carved out of a single huge boulder.

Caves from the 2nd century, well maintained by ASI. Nice views from atop the caves. Also, this has great statues of the sleeping Vishnu inside the caves.

They are very small when compared to Badami, but the cave architecture is great...The sleeping Vishnu ( Padmanabhswamy) and Ganesh ( Vigneshwar) are amazing statures. They are hidden treasures...a must watch.

I went here with a friend and his family, It is great for people who like old places, I advise to get a guide as they give you a lot of interesting information. The great historic place was a touch of both buddhism and hinduism....
