If the majestic temples of Pattadakal fascinate you, take the Pattadakal excursions tour to nearby Badami and Aihole and marvel at unique cave temples.
Aihole (46 km)
Visit Aihole for a glimpse of the Hindu temple architecture. Aihole was the first capital of the Chalukyan Empire and hundreds of temples dot the scenic landscape of this village. The prominent temple groups are the Kontigudi group and the Galaganatha group.
Badami (29 km)
The picturesque town of Badami is renowned for its cave temples. Scooped out of a red sandstone rock on the cliff of a hill, the four cave temples of Badami are must-haves on the itinerary of tourists. Out of the four temples, three are Brahmanical temples (2 dedicated to Vishnu and one to Shiva) and one is a Jain cave temple of the 7th century.
