Drive into the morning to Badami. Located in Karnataka state of India’s Bagalkot district, Badami was the capital of the Chalukya dynasty and built in the midst of two rough outcrops of sandstone. This lies near the Agastya Tirtha Lake of the 5th century — a holy lake known for its water’s healing power. Switch to hotel on arrival at Badami. Evening is free for recreation. A stop at the hotel, overnight.
