An important UNESCO World Heritage site, Group of Monuments at Pattadakal consists of nine temples, a Jain sanctuary, and several smaller shrines built under the Chalukyan dynasty (7th and 8th century CE). The complex will give a thrill to history and architecture buffs and photography enthusiasts alike. Chalukyan rulers—great patrons of art once crowned here—encouraged innovation, which resulted in a magnificent blend of styles of temple building and delicate art on the temples. Look for the numerous Kannada language inscriptions. The Temple of Virupaksha stands out as a masterpiece and the only operating temple. For details, buy a guidebook, visit the museum related to this site, or hire a guide. Either bring your own food or give the stalls selling local food a chance--no proper restaurants are close by.
