Travel Badami Karnataka

It is 4 pm on a Sunday and the sun casts its setting rays on the mouth of a deep ravine located between two hills. The jagged outline of the sandstone turns a deep red in the evening light as millions of tourists make their way up the hillocks to visit and view the caves.

Badami – Where Gods Abide in Caves

24 January 2013

The emerald-green Agasthya Lake sparkles in the evening light, surrounded by a glowing sandstone outcrop that was once the capital of the Chalukya rulers. This town, which once answered to the name of Vatapi, was built back in the 6th century. Today we know it as Badami, and it is named after the ruddy colour of the rocky cliffs here.

Join LAKSHMI SHARATH on a visual tour of the spectacular rock-cut caves of Badami in Karnataka's Bagalkot district.
