Aihole

Bagalkot , Karnataka

On the banks of Malaprabha River in the Bagalkot district of Karnataka, Aihole is a place with great religious and historical significance. Being an experimental ground for different types temple architecture in the Chalukyan period, this place has some of the masterpieces of Hindu temples. Amidst the village rises a sudden temple whose beautiful walls are hidden behind newly constructed concrete structures. There are more than a hundred temples scattered in this temple city which range from the initial rock cut variety to the more evolved ones. You will never fall short of a place to visit once you are in Aihole. The art is astounding and all around you. Interestingly, there is not only stone temples but cave temples and mega stone graves. The must see of course is the Durga temple with its astounding architecture and the Ladh Khan temple. Also not to be missed is the Konthi Temple Complex (Kwanthi Gudi), the Uma Maheswari Temple with a beautifully carved Brahma seated on a lotus and the two storeyed Buddhist Temple. Summers are too hot to walk around exploring this place thus the best time to be here is the winters from November onwards. By air Bangalore is the closest and by train it is Badani. Keep in mind, there are virtually no hotels in Aihole. It is just a village. The best bet is to stay in Badani and hire a car and then go ahead and lose yourself in some awe inspiring architecture.
