  • The best place for a family trip. The moments are amazing. Each and every temples are a treat to our eyes.
  • From the moment i came across this word Pattadakal, i was eager to visit this place. By the way the locals call it Pattadakallu (sounds more sexy too). As i began to read about this place, the list began to grow, finally we made up our mind to visit the places, and we kept our base as Bijapur, since that would be the best decent place to stay and visit these places. A wonderful amazing place, full of history, from the 6th to the 8th century. Wonderful chalukyan architecture. Historians consider Aihole as a kindergarden in temple architecture, which was perfected here in Pattadakalu, hence they called this the high school in temple architecture and finally mastered in Badami, which was considered to be the college of temple architecture. When you visit all three places you can clearly see the gradation in the way the sculptures get improvement. The chalukyans were at war with the Pallavas of Tamil nadu, due to which the pallava princess were married to the chalukyan kings. When the pallava princess went north, they took with them the sculptures who did the wonderful sikkara type temples in pattadakal. Wonderful place, definitely not to be missed if you are interested in history and also a good place for beautiful photography.
  • A good group of monuments is very well kept grounds . I totally pleasant experience, although rs500 per person to get in is pricey and there aren't that many things to see . We got there at opening time before the crowds and heat came , which i think was a good call
  • Great architecture at Pattadakal. It was the capital city of Badami (Chalukya Dynasty). These temples are on the bank of River Malaprabha.
  • Must visit place . one of the word heritage site in karnataka and second one is hampi Entry Fee:Rs30 Timing:8am to Sunset Time Spent:5 hour Place to See Here: Glagnath Temple Kadsideshwar Temple Kashivishveshar Shiva Temple Mallika Arjuna Temple sANGMESHWAR mANDIR Virupaksha Temple
