As already mentioned in my previous post, I’d be now covering Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami rock cut cave temples. All these places can be combined in a single day. You could also get to Kudalasangama on the way. This is where Krishna and Malaprabha rivers merge. Aikya mantap of Sri Basavanna is present here. This would be the first place to visit and then head to Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami respectively.
We had booked a cab for ourselves since the places are pretty far from one another. Having a cab becomes convenient. Regarding the food, you would not find many restaurants on the way. There is entry fee everywhere and it is not expensive at all. By the way, they do charge for cameras and handycams. Again not expensive for Indians [Charges are separate for Indians and foreigners]
