Mahakuta is a delightful oasis near Badami
A beautiful banyan tree John would have loved to see/hear this in action -- bells, cymbal, kettle drum Siv and admirers Women and children posing for the camera
And young men Mahakuta is shady and cool and delightful Siv in front of the main temple Inside the temple
Bathing in the spring-fed tank Ardhanarishvara - Shiva and Parvati as two sides of the same figure Tree over the tank What a tree!
The water looked very inviting... Visitors from a school or something Monkeys
