Aihole is famous for its temples. With around 70 different temple complexes from the Chalukya era, this place is a delight for architectural photographers. This particular temple known as Durga Temple is not dedicated to goddess Durga but stands for a fort. Durg= Fort.This particular structure was built around the 7th-8th century. Most of the temples in this region are known for beautifully carved ceilings rather than close clustered wall sculptures. I will be uploading the ceiling of this particular temple soon.
