Set in beautiful countryside amongst sandstone hills, lakes and peaceful farmlands, Badami is magnificently
situated in a canyon, and scattered amongst the surroundings hills are temples, fortifications and carvings.

Badami is best known for its remarkable cave temples. They display the full range of Indian religious sects.
Two of them are dedicated to Vishnu, one to Siva and the fourth is a Jain temple. There is also a Buddhist temple
