Pattadakal comprises a wonderful series of Hindu temples and a Jain sanctuary. The oldest of the temples group here is the Sangamesvara temple which was built by Vijayaditya Satyasraya.

The first of the wonderful temples that you will get to see in the complex are the 8th century Kaddi Siddesvara Temple and the Galaganatha Shrine. The Mallikarjuna and Virupaksha temples were built by two queens of Vikramaditya II. They were constructed to mark the win of the Chalukyas over Pallavas.

The Virupaksha temple, built by Queen Lokamahadevi, was previously called as Lokeshwara. The temple is a fine example of the southern Dravidan architectural style. The Jambulinga Temple boasts of a dancing image of the Hindu God, Shiva. He is shown together with his bull, Nandi and wife, Parvati. This temple is a fine example of the northern style of architecture.

A couple of other significant temples within the complex include the Chandrashekhara and Kadasideeshwara temples.These two are well known for their architecture. Outside the complex and presently under restoration is the Rastrakuta Jain Temple. This temple stands on the bank of the Malaprabha ( Tungabhadra River).
