Once the royal capital of Chalukyas, today, Badami is a quaint town nestled in the Bagalkot district of Karnataka. The town is full of cave temples, fortresses, carvings and entrances. It is the site of the 6th and 7th century Brahmanical and Jain Cave Temples and that’s why it is often referred to as the “Cradle of South Indian Architecture’. These temples are carved out of solid rock and speak volumes about the art and architecture of that period. These 4 cave temples are linked to each other via stairs.
