Badami is an ancient town located in the Bagalkot district in the state of Karnataka. The city, earlier known as ‘Vatapi’ has once been the capital of the Badami Chalukya Empire around AD 540. This is a place must-visit for the history buffs and children.
It is popular for Red Sandstone Cliffs, Agastya Lake and Bhutanatha Temple Complex. Badami Fort, Aihole, Banashankari Temple and Archeological Museum are other good attractions. The sandstone cliffs located here are also perfect for rock climbing. Free sports services are provided by the state government. November to February is a good time to visit this city when the temperature is moderate. The entry to the temple complex has scheduled timing and requires a very nominal fee.
