Remains of the Chalukya Empire

With the first site comes the first shock. Making up the backdrop of this peaceful village, the remains of the Chalukya Empire are nestled in the reddish depths of a little mount. Monkeys have made their homes in the middle of Jainist sanctuaries in the hollowed-out cliff. Sculptured statues in the caves mock eternity. Down below, the bluish waters of a lake edged with red bring the final touch to this unique sight. Time flies when the magic sets in.
