Things To do in Badami


Located within the Bhootanatha temple cluster by the serene Agastya Lake of Badami, the Mallikarjuna Temple is an elegant representation of Chalukyan architectural influence. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this 11th-century temple and its surrounding smaller shrines are designed in a star-shaped plan, showcasing the Phamsana style with tiered pyramids. The uncarved outer walls and the typical Rashtrakuta style tower of the inner sanctum add to the historical charm of the temple. The beautiful Agastya Lake, with the backdrop of the rocky hills of Badami, provides a picturesque setting for visitors to enjoy.
