Badami historical background

Guys i am unable to post Golden heritage   for want of its approval by Indiblogger management.  But in the meanwhile i have tried to link the same with historical perspective.  The discovery of Gold in Chalukyan domain  has obviously spurred construction of monuments with a dual objective of establishing the hindu empire in the region and leaving behind a legacy of great builders.  But for the partial destruction of the monuments by the raiding invaders and crass commercialisation the combined territory of  Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal would resembled an empire beyond compare.  Please do take a look at the following link

Very informative post. Renowned for its sandstone cave temples, Badami (Vatapi) (Vatapi) is a delightful destination for both the religious lot and the archaeologists. Having served once as the capital to the Chalukya Dynasty, it is now a quiet town. Its sandstone cliffs attract climbers from all over the world for climbing and bouldering. Check out all best hotels in Badami also.
