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 🙂

Villagers in Aihole –

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 🙂

Prabhu and his friend Nagarjuna –

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

Structural temple architecture –

A lovely lot

Met a great set of kids on my recent trip to Badami 🙂 Though they spoke only Kannad, making any conversation very hard, a helpful Kannad lady willingly translated in which standard was each of them studying 🙂 A very happy and enthu lot overall 🙂
