Aihole, a small village in Karnataka in South India is also called the cradle of Indian temple architecture. The entire temple complex was built between the 5th – 7th century CE. A herculean task indeed…
Featuring three of the photographs for this week’s photo challenge.
Framing the Lad Khan Temple built in the 5th century CE. This Shiva temple was one of the first temples to be built by the Chalukya kings.
A stone door frame featuring five layers of carvings. Each level is carved differently and the intricacy is simply amazing.
The image of Garuda on top of the doorway.
More pictures and commentary in a separate blog later…
