Chalukyan architecture


Badami and pattadkal Badami: Four cave temples. One for Lord shiva, two for Lord visnhu, last one for jainism Pattadakal: Out of the 9 surviving temples at Pattadakal, 4 are in Nagara style (North Indian), 4 are in Dravidian style (South Indian) and 1 is in mixed style. It is very rare to find such a variety of structures next to each other, consciously built by same builders, who indeed were patrons of temple architecture in India. And that’s why this place was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Aihole archtecture skill level- primary school Badami achitecture- high school Pattadkal- University level.
