Cave temple at Badami, Karnataka

A user's photo.Cave temple at Badami, Karnataka
Badami cave temples have rock cut halls with three basic features: pillared veranda, columned hall and a sanctum cut out deep i...nto rock.
One noteworthy feature of these cave temples is the running frieze of Ganas in various amusing postures caved in relief on each plinth.
The outside verandas of the cave temples are rather plain, but the inner hall contains rich and prolific sculptural symbolism. Art critic Dr. M. Sheshadri wrote of the Chalukya art that they cut rock like Titans but finished like jewellers.
