Around Badami – Aihole

Aihole is a small town , about 50 kms from Badami. The interesting thing about this place is that the village settlement is sprinkled amongst the ruins. Various temples and structures are located behind the villagers’ huts, and it’s easy to find locals sitting in these ancient buildings for a leisurely chat 🙂

Our local guide, who went by the name of Prabhu. He wasn’t really an official guide, but then he was very eager to show us around 🙂

Trying to show us something called “Ulta Pulta” 😀 Still can’t figure out what that quite was…
