inIdée #386 – Visiting the antique temples and remains of Pattadakal

UnescoPattadakal, quoted from the State of Karantaka, is a beautiful illustrative example of an eclectic art of the VIIth and VIIIth century in India. Under the aegis of the dynasty Chalukya, this art synthesizes formidably well the architectural forms of the North and the South of India. The site receives in particular the vestiges of nine Hindu temples and a jaïn sanctuary. The temple of Virupaksha, raised towards 740 by queen Lokamahadevi to commemorate the victory of her husband on the sovereigns of the provinces of the South, is considered as the ultimate masterpiece of the site. Pattadakal is registered on the UNESCO world heritage list since 1987. G
