Description: At one time called Vatapi, the name of a demon which haunted this area, this impoverished looking village was the capital of the empire of the Calukyas [sic], the great warriors and builders of temples. The town was conquered and destroyed by the Pallavas in 640. The Calukyas rebuilt it but were finally replaced by the Rastrakutas [sic] in 753. A large number of temples were built in and around the town, three Brahmanical and one Jaina, from which one has a view of the town.
