Being in the town of Badami,you will find three major attractions,1-Four Cave temples(For me Petra of India) 2- Ruins of Badami Fort 3- Bhoothnath group of temples. It is a beautiful place with some amazing Artwork and Architecture. Here I'am going to give a description only about Bhoothnath Group of temples as this fine architecture enthralled me the most. On the bank of the lake(with Green Water) Bhoothnath temple is an example of astonishing Architecture, Mesmerizing Artwork and intense Devotion.It is a cluster of sandstone shrines. The Temple group has a Architectural forms from different Periods according to the archaeologists,on one hand some of the structures are built in 7th century and some of them were built in 11th century as well. Heavy columns, Small chambers,Ceilings decorated with lotus rosette,Carved dome, A large piece of rock carved with beautiful pictures depicting ancient tales of Hindu Gods and Goddesses...Amazing it is. So if you love Architecture or Archaeology or History or Cave Art or Stone carving or Photography or Nothing but Serenity, it is a place you should visit.Anyways, Some of the local people told me that one must visit the exquisite site in the days of Monsoon as during the rain their occurs waterfalls from the hills backside of the temple which increases the water level of the lake and temple group uses to submerge in it. Waterfalls, Temples submerged in a lake, Green Water and Herons around it, believe me friends I'm waiting for the Monsoons eagerly this year as I don't want to miss what I have imagined about this place.
