Rock Cut cave Temples Of Badami in Karnataka, India.
Badami, the capital of the Early Chalukyas, who ruled much of Karnataka in the 6th to 8th centuries, lies at the mouth of a ravine with rocky hills on either side and a town tank in which water from the ravine flows. The town is known for its ancient cave temples carved out of the sandstone hills above.
These caves are considered an example of Indian rock-cut architecture, especially Badami Chalukya Architecture.
The Badami Cave Temples are composed of 'four caves', all carved out of the soft Badami sandstone.
The cave temples date back to the 6th and 7th century. Their architecture is a blend of North Indian Nagara Style and South Indian Dravidian style.
