Book Description



  The temples at Pattadakal, badami (identified with the ancient city of

Vatapi) and Aihole in northern Karnataka were built by the Early Chalukyas,

the most important line of kings to rule this part of the Deccan from the

sixth to the eighth century.





In spite of being a unique heritage spot, no English language guidebook

exists on Pattadakal. As the number of visitors to the site increases, this

volume will fill the lacuna, guiding tourists through the maze of monuments

with their mixed architectural styles and the intricately carved sculptures

on the walls, columns, and ceilings.





The author provides succinct descriptions of each of these monuments

highlighting the unique juxtaposition of the Nagara style of architecture

of north India and the constrasting Dravida style of the south.





Written lucidly with a useful glossary, the book provides interesting

and useful information to the general reader, tourists and visitors to the

site.
