  • Amazingly maintained by Archaeological society of India. Didn’t expect this much beauty from this place. Multiple monuments at and many Shivalinga’s exists but not supposed to worship. Only one temple inside is allowed to do worship and Pooja Worth to visit.
  • This is a beautiful historical Temple complex which would take you back in time.The monuments are stunning and best appreciated with the knowledge of a guide
  • Excellent site,with new addition of audio visual tour under world heritage site project by Karnataka tourism,I suggest it should be seen before visiting monuments.so we could focus on the sculptures.
  • ಪಟ್ಟದ ಕಲ್ಲು also known as Rakthapura, on the banks of river Malaprabha, Bagalkote district - is a group of monuments built by Chalukyas during 7th & 8th century
  • Whole place is maintained by ASI. Well preserved by ASI. I would suggest to take guide which will explain the variety of temple architecture and various important carvings inside the Temple. This is a UNESCO world heritage site
