A beautiful temple structure with some artistic sculptures within the temple as well as on the outer walls n ceiling as wellHow to reach?Simple, just climb aboard any auto that takes you to aihole, as for me I did the same, just outside the Pattadakal group of temples.

Since both Durga temple and Lad khan temple structures are at the same place, it was quite helpful. As for the temple, its a magnificent structure as well.

Right outside the durga temple complex, to the left hand side you'll find Mallikarjuna Temple complex. When I reached this place, I was baffled. As to I saw the villagers sleeping around the temple complex. I went to see the structures but rather found sleeping folks.

A temple built within a small cave. But was magnificently curved., from walls to the ceilings it was amazing and bit cool as well.

Its bit far away from Durga Temple complex, but near to Ravanphadi cave complex.As this is not visible from the main road, unless you follow the concrete path that goes towards Ravanphadi cave.

Its a beautiful temple, but the water in the pond was dried up so it was bit disappointing.As this wasn't even a planned visit, as i had reached here by lack of communication between the driver and me., as i was going to Badami Caves but unfortunately reached here. Well thats the best part of travelling solo, u'll make the most out of your wrong decisions.
