Bagalkot City Tour

Bagalkot City Tour
Bagalkot, earlier, a part of Bijapur district, was craved out as a separate district in 1997. This area is home to some of the finest examples of temple architecture in the world.

Pattadakal, with its complex of magnificent temples, has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Bagalkot, the district headquarters is a commercial town and major hub of the area.

Aihole was the capital of the Chalukayan kings, between the 4th and 6th century A.D., when they began experimenting with the idea of constructing temples with stone blocks.

You therefore see Hindu temple architecture in its embryonic stage, from simple shrines, like those in the Konthigudi group and the Lad Khan temple to the more complex edifices, such as the Meguthi temple.

Aihole has over 125 temples, all intricately carved and rich in detail. The oldest temple here, is perhaps the Lad Khan dating back to the 5th Century A.D.

The Durga temple has a semicircular apse, and a sanctum, circled by a richly carved colonnaded passageway.

The Hutchamalli temple, the Ravalphadi Cave temple, the Konthi temple complex, the Jain Meghuthi temple and the two storied Buddhist temple are the site worth visiting.
