The ancient name of the place is Vatapi, the name of one obnoxious dreadful demon, who ruled over this region in such contemptuous manner that a holy sage enraged at his atrocities devoured him for the good of the people, according to the legend. In addition to Hindu temples, a fair sprinkling of Jain Mandirs is also observable here, both atop the hill and near the lake called Bhutanatha. To cap as it were, the very Nature made gorge leading to the capital city adorned throughout with temples of unique type is a miss-not fortune, aver the artcritics. The whole region of Badami enchants with its haunting Panorama. The Siva temple lying on the other side of the Bhutanatha lake, houses the beautiful Bhutanatha image of Siva in sitting pose revealing His Roudrarupa. It is quite impressive. They are many temples dedicated to Vishnu and others. In the vicinity of this holy kshetra at a distance of 5 km, there lies the sculpture gallery housing monumental pieces belonging to Aihole, Pattadakkal and Badami temples. On the way to Pattadakkal, there is the famous Banasankari temple worthy of visitation and adoration.

It lies 163 km off Bijapur, the capital of the renowned Adilsahi rulers enjoying rail and road facilities.
