Badami is a heritage Town in Badami is a town in Bagalkot District Karnataka

The Proposal was a Sustainable and Holistic Approach to the Revival of its Heritage to enhance the tourist influx. The Concept is derived from An Open Hand where presently the town is having congestion like a closed fist that needs to open up. For this, we proposed a new destinations point for Tourist Arrival on a loop road to avoid the through traffic intervention. The different streets were developed as Traditional / Heritage Street, Green / Renewable Energy Street, and Festival Street with Low Environmental Impact promoting Day Tourism. The Proposal envisaged the issues like Gender-Sensitive Approach, Women’s Participation in Development, with Conservation of Local Social and Cultural Ethos.
