Historical place taking us to 4th century

Badami is a historical place taking us back to 4th century to Chalukya dynasty. Badami Caves are worth seeing world heritage place. We visited again this place in second week of July 2014. Banashankari Devi temple is again a historic and religious famous temple to visit. We stayed at Mayura Chalukya Hotel, a centrally located nice hotel.
