Situated opposite to the famous Bhootnath temple in Badami, sits the Yellamma Temple. Noted for its tower, whose layered roof describes a shape halfway between the curved shikharas of North India & the pancake pyramids of the south. Its outer wall lifts the roof upon a fabric of verticality, achieved by the single-minded division of its projections into a dense forest of tall, slender, closely-spaced, & delicately engaged pilasters.⠀
Founded by the Chalukyas, Badami in Karnataka dates back to 6th & 7th century AD was the capital of the Chalukya Dynasty. It is situated at the mouth of a beautiful ravine, flanked on either side by beautiful sandstone hills. The Rock Cut Cave Temples are the main tourist attraction in Badami. Carved out of massive stone cliff, the cave temples are the best example of Chalukya architecture style. Among the four caves, Cave Temple 1 is the oldest with carvings of Shiva. Cave Temple 2 is completely dedicated to Lord Vishnu who is worshiped in the form of the Preserver. Inside Cave Temple 3, Lord Vishnu can be seen in carved incarnations of Trivikrama & Narasimha & frescoes also depict the wedding of Shiva & Parvati. Cave Temple 4 on the other side is dedicated to Jainism, the cave has figurine of Tirthankara Parshavnatha & Mahavira is shown as sitting.⠀
