The Chalukyans of Badami ruled by king Pulkeshi for more than two century. The capital of Chalukyans is Vatapi the present Badami. It was the first dynasty to establish its name and fame throughout India after defeating king Harshavardan, the north Indian overload. Their Architecture reached its highest peek under the Chalukyans. The monuments and temples at Aihole, Badami and Pattadkal speak eloquently of the glory and grandeur of the Chalukyans. The Chalukyan rulers were Hindus but they were tolerant towards the Buddhists and Jains. They built a strong navy and developed some spots encouraging trade with Arabia and Persia.
