Create an itinerary including Agastya Lake
Wander along the banks of Agastya Lake, an artificial lake abundant with temples and cave sculptures. Observe the panoramic views of the lake from the surrounding highlands or explore the red sandstone temples around the water. The lake itself is said to be man-carved in the 5th century, and carries the name of Sage Agastya, a man who killed one of the two demon siblings, Vatapi and Ilvala by counter-tricking them by digesting one brother before the other could revive him, thus saving the local people. Experienced climbers can find many rock climbing opportunities. Rafting and boating services are available for the adventurous.

  • Splenind view of Lake. Has water throughout year. Magical location across the BADAMI CAVES. Hope the huts on its banks are relocated to enhance the beauty.
