Abstract: We are trying to scale a sandstone cliff near Badami, and Nagaraj – a 20-year-old resident of this historic town — is playing the role of my instructor. I had run into him while exploring near Ranganatha Gudi, on the outskirts of Badami, on the way to Banashankari. The temple, recently renovated and painted in garish colours, and believed to date back to the Vijayanagar period, is cleverly located in a narrow gorge created by crumbling cliffs of sandstone some 60 feet high. Nagaraj had seen me look appreciatively at the soaring cliffs of the gorge and offered to help me climb them. “You get better photographs of the temple from up there,” he had told me with a wide grin.
