Village Scene

The small village of Aihole in the Bagalkot district of Karnataka has the potential to be a world heritage site because it has over 125 temples dating back to the 7th century and some even earlier temples have recently been excavated. Aihole was an important city in the Chalukya Dynasty and is considered as one of the cradles of temple architecture. Despite this, apart from the famous Durga temple at the cross roads in the centre of the village, the village and surrounding temples are quiet most of the time.

Wandering through the narrow streets we were greeted by the children at play while the adults were usually relaxed about being photographed.
