The site of Paṭṭadakal.—Stretched along the river Malaprabhā, over a distance of 1 km, the ancient site of the city of Paṭṭadakal includes a main group of old temples in its northern half, the modern quarters of the residents of the village in the southern half and at the southern limit one more major old temple. Remnants of a northsouth fort wall are still observable to-day in the village. It must have been the western limit of the ancient city. The modern village has large extensions beyond that limit towards west. The broad east-west street is entirely beyond the same limit. It is a fact that from the west end of that street one sees the śikhara and finial of the Lokeśvara temple
