Reviews of Group of Monuments at Pattadakal • 1
I set off for Pattadakal through narrow village roads and was glad to share my ride with locals wanting to visit neighboring villages. Pattadakal is different from Badami. While Badami’s hallmark are its caves and sculptures, Pattadakal is a big complex housing several temples built with exquisite carvings on the outside. While inner pillars also have various mythological scenes, it is the external beauty of the temple tops and the external walls that demand greater attention.
