Tour the awe-inspiring Badami Cave Temples, a complex of sandstone cave temples displaying rock-cut architecture dating back to the sixth century. These caves range from Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist sources, including some of the earliest known examples of Hindu temples. In Cave 1, look for the striking carvings depicting Tandava-dancing, and in Cave 2 find the relief of Vishnu as Trivikrama. Expect to spend the most time in Cave 3, the largest of the caves, which highlights Hindu mythology with intricate, detailed carvings. You'll have to climb up some steep steps to reach the temples. Beware of the local monkeys, who will steal your food or bags if you leave them unattended. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Badami trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
Badami Cave Temples Reviews
Badami was amazing. Its quite a few steps to the caves at the second level, but just take your time. The steps cut from the rock are a little higher than normal. I would suggest taking a guided tour or read up a fair bit on the caves - thats what we did. The caves are surprisingly cool despite the hot sun. Try and go right to the top. the view from there is spectacular.
A wonderful historical place for all Indians to visit. Especially to know how our kings ruled and how much importance was given to our art and culture.. if we think we are modern, you will find extremely broad minded sculptures in it..
