Badami has nice rock-cut (sandstone) temples -one of the first in India. 25 km from Badami is Pattadakal, which is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Another important historical place, Aihoe is 50km from Badami. Though rock-climbing is not a primary attraction, this sport is catching up especially in winter. Aviod venturing to this place in Summer as temperatures go pretty high.
