During Diwali of 2021 we decided to visit some of the architectural places in Karnataka.
We started our trip on 29-October-2021. Here is the trip itinerary.
- Day 1 -- Bengaluru to Vijaypura (Bijapur)
- Day 2 -- Vijayapura Local Sightseeing
- Day 3 -- Vijayapura to Badami with stop over at Aihole and Pattadakal
- Day 4 - Badami to Hampi with a visit to Badami Cave Temples
- Day 5 -- Hampi local sightseeing, Vittala Temple, Royal Enclosure
- Day 6 -- Virupaksha Temple and Evolve Back Resort
- Day 7 -- Hampi to Bengaluru back
These places provide a window in evolution of temple architecture in Karnataka and is a must visit for anybody interested in anything historical. The roads were decent throughout and not many tolls had to be paid. The petrol prices were probably highest at this time.
