Pattadakal is a village and important tourist spot in Karnataka. Of course its UNESCO recognition is a significant achievement in itself with its monuments dating back to the 8th century. Apart from the elegant Jain Temple, the monuments include `Virupaksha Temple`, the largest and grandest in the group. It was built by queen Lokamahadevi in 745 AD to commemorate the victory of her husband Badami Chalukya king Vikramaditya II over the Pallavas of Kanchi. This temple is also adorned with rich sculptures of Nataraja, Lingodbhava and Ugranarasimha. The temple is also an exact replica of Kailasa Temple of Kanchipuram. Pattadakal is 500 kms from Bangalore. Does anyone native to Bangalore or Karnataka know more about the monuments and temples of this World Heritage Site?
