BIJAPUR & BADAMI

₹ 9500 / 1 pax

Bijapur is a Heritage City located in the historically rich Deccan, the one-time capital of the king Adil Shah empire(1489 – 1686 AD). It is dotted with mosques, museums, places, fortifications, watch towers, and strong gateways, with the massive Gol Gumbaz which dominate the landscape for miles around.

Gol Gumbaz is a magnificent mausoleum of Muhammed Adil Sha. It houses the world’s second largest dome, unsupported by pillars. Built in 1959, its most arresting features are the seven storied octagonal spires at the four corners and the heavy braketed cornice below the parapet. The amazing whispering gallery which distinctly echoes the faintest whisper eleven times is an unforgettable experience.

Ibrahim Roza, which is said to be the inspiration for the Taj Mahal in Agra, this palatial mosque and tomb in Bijapur is simply impressive. This mausoleum of Ibrahim Adil Shal II has two buildings standings on a common platform, supported by arches and enclosed by garden on three sides.

Malik-E- Maidan is a 55 ton Cannon perched on a platform. The lead of the cannon is fasioned into the shape of a lion whose jaws are trying to devour an elephant. Legend has it that if you touch the gun and make a wish, it will definitely come true.

Badami is situated at the mouth of a ravine between two rocky hills. The exquisite sculptures and the rust red sandstone cliffs of Badami tell many tales of yore. Climb a flight of steps to reach the four ancient rock cut caves replete with carved pillars and bracket figures, all hewn out of red sandstone, on the precipice of a hill. The largest of them is the third cave, dedicated to  Lord Vishnu. The first sculptural embellishment to dazzle the eye is the 18 armed Nataraja, striking 81 poses, in the first cave, and overlooks the Agastya Threetha Tank dotted with a cluster of Bhoothantha temples.

Pattadakal, with its beautifully chiselled temples, this World Heritage Site on the banks of Malaprabha river, bears testimony to the richness of Chalukyan architecture. Pattadakal reached its pinnacle of glory under the Chalukya kings and was once used as a ceremonial centre where crowned and commemorated. It has a cluster of 10 major temples, each displaying intresting architectural features. At the entrance of the site, you can see the 8th-century temples of Jambulinga, Kadasiddeshvara and Galagantha with their curvilinear shikaras or spires. The biggest temple, dedicated to lord Virupaksha, has a huge gateway, several inscriptions, and a profusion of friezes from the epics.
