Regarded as one of the oldest temples in Aihole, Lad Khan Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Dating back to the 5th during the kings of Chalukya Dynasty, the temple lies on the south of Durga Temple, which another popular religious site in Aihole. It was named after a Muslim prince, who lived here for a short while. The temple has a panchayat hall style of architecture, which shows an early experiment of temple construction.

The temple comprises of a square mantapa, a mukha mantapa and the sanctum, constructed against the back wall. The main sanctum consists of a Shiva Linga with a Nandi. Nicely carved stone lattices on the walls and windows of temple are worth admiring.
