Page Last Updated: April 04, 2014

In the cultural history of  South India, the emergence of the Chalukyas of Badami and Chalukyas of Kalyan is an important event, particularly in the field of art and architecture. They caused the excavations of rock cut temples and construction of structural temples. Having made use of the locally available red sand stone, they experimented to blend the characteristic features of the contemporary Indian architectural styles--Rekhanaga and Dravida.
