The Chalukya Creativity

After wholeheartedly appreciating the Cave Temples of Badami we continued our journey to the next historical landmark in Karnataka, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Pattadakal. Pattadakal, the capital of Chalukyas, is a series of temples. There are many temples viz. Virupaksha temple, Sangameshwara temple, Mallikarjuna temple, Kashi Vishwanatha temple, Jain temple etc. The stone carvings are awe-inspiring, the reliefs are mind-blowing. I'm gonna be less wordy this time for I myself don't have enough information, those interested could read the wiki page of Pattadakal.
