Photographer's Note

Hello my friends,

I traveled this beautiful place at the end of January, 2012 when I returned from Hampi in the state of Karnataka. The picture is Badami group of temples at the embankment of Agasythya lake. Badami is a city in Karnataka. It is located 500 kilometers from Bangalore.

Badami was the capital of the Early Chalukyas, who ruled much of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh between the 6th and 8th centuries. It was founded in 540 A.D. by Pulakesi I (535-566 AD), an early ruler of the Chalukyas. His sons Kirthivarman (567-598 AD) and his brother Mangalesha I (598-610 AD) constructed the cave temples. The greatest among them was Pulakeshi II (610-642 AD) who defeated many kings including Pallava king Mahendra Verman-I and extended the kingdom.

The Badami cave temples are composed of four caves, all carved out of the soft Badami sandstone on a hill cliff in the late 6th to 7th centuries.

I hope you enjoy it.

best wishes to all,

swapankumarroy
