About Badami


Badami, the capital of the South Indian Kingdom of the Chalukyas, is situated near a beautiful red sandstone ridge in North Karnataka. Initially known as Vatapi, the city was founded by Pulkeshin I in AD 543. It was under the Chalukyas period Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal produced some of the best specimen of rock-cut temples. These architectural splendours were inspirational for many architectural and sculpting traditions that followed. The place lost its importance duing the reign of the Ratsrakutas. Badami has a enjoyable climate with cool and dry winter. Most of the rainfall occurs during the months of south-western monsoon.


Eating Out  

Many of the vineyard owners of the region will also organise wine tours in Bagalkot and Bijapur as part of the effort to popularise the wines produced in north Karnataka. There will also be a north  badmi food festival where local chefs will plate up delicacies from Adil Shahi era as well as other well known delights such as Jolada  Rotti and Bakhri.


Shopping in Badami can really be a pleasurable experience.With dazzling shopping arcades and shopping malls strewn all around the state, Karnataka has become one of the shopping hubs in India. But the village shops in Badami are also wonderful as here you would get all the local items made of sandalwood. With its sparkling silks, sandalwood and rosewood carvings and exquisite handicrafts, Badami excels as the shoppers paradise.
