Badami.—Rock-cut caves of different parts of India developed variations depending upon the nature of the rock into which they were carved. Badami (ancient Vātāpi), in Karnataka, the capital of the Cālukyan dynasty is home to a number of such cave temples of sandstone belonging to the 6th century. They are mostly for Hindu deities and one is a Jaina cave temple.
Vastushastra (वास्तुशास्त्र, vāstuśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science (shastra) of architecture (vastu), dealing with topics such architecture, sculpture, town-building, fort building and various other constructions. Vastu also deals with the philosophy of the architectural relation with the cosmic universe.

Bādāmi Calukyas.—The glory of Karnāṭaka begins, practically, with the rise of the western Calukya, mostly known as Bādāmi Calukya kings. The Calukya kings of Bādāmi ruled over a vast empire of Karnāṭaka whose boundaries were delimited by Godāvarī in the north and Kāveri in the south. Many inscriptions make an allusion to the kings of this dynasty as descended from Ayodhyā and some later epigraphs say that they came from the north. That means they belonged to the family of Rāma, hero of the famous epic Rāmāyaṇa.
It is clear from this inscription, that by Śaka 465 that is by A.D. 543 Bādāmi became the principal capital of Calukya kings and a fort was built atop on the hill. The fort can be visited even to-day. Bādāmi was known in the local language as Vātāpi, although Ptolemy mentions it as Badaimio. Bādāmi is the vernacular form of Vātāpi in Sanskrit.Source: Knowledge Traditions & Practices of India: Painting: A Survey (h)
Badami (caves) is an archaeologically important site containing ancient Indian mural paintings.—Very little survives in the 6th-century Western Calukyan cave temples, but the stamp of Ajanta remains unmistakeable.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
