The priceless sculptural gift that the illustrious Paschima Chalukyas presented to the Bharatamata, lying at a small village called Pattadakal is yet another visit-worthy place of supreme significance, both for asthikas and paryatakas. Located on the left bank of the river Malaprabha in the Bijapur district of Karnataka, it is accessible from Aihole by bus or train from Badami Railway Station on the Southern Railway. Eminent scholars and travelers of east and west as well hailed it as a monumental contribution to the sculptural art, and a standing specimen of the synthesis of North and South Indian architectural styles. About ten temples dedicated mostly to Saivate deities as exemplified by their names as Jumbulinga. Kasiviswanatha, Sangameswara, Mallikarjuna, Virupaksha, Papanatha etc., were built between the 6th and 9th centuries.
