The royal capital of the Badami Chalukyas their legacy is what you will see in every nook and corner of this place, especially in the rock cuts and the caves that surround Badami and make it such a apecial place to be in.

The Badami Cave temples are excerpts from the pages of Indian history which show the true form of our country at that time. Sculpted between the 6 th to 8th century, the 4 caves are true example of secularism, as they portray Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism in equal measures depicting the character of the tolerant and liberal rulers. The Buddhist cave situated in natural surroundings is a place which makes you crawl on your hands and knees and is quite a novel experiences.
