Photographer's Note

Carvings on one of the Entrances of Durga Temple, Aihole.

Aihole, currently a village, historically the 1st capital of Chalukyas at 450 A.D. The Temples here, range from 5th Century to 12th Century CE. It has 125 architecturally magnificent temples. Aihoḷe has been described as one of the cradles of temple architecture. Some brick structures of pre-Chalukyan times have also been excavated in this village. Durga temple or fortress temple is the best known of the Aihole temples and is very photogenic. A must visit for history lovers and photographers.
