Weekend Getaway 46: Antharagange Temple, Kolar

Date: 28th May 2017

Visitors: Pic below

Timing: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Fee: None

Main Deity: Lord Shiva

After visiting Kotilingeshwara temple we visited the Shiva temple in Antharagange. The place is famous among trekkers. We reached the place around 1:15 PM and it was bit hot. Early morning will be the ideal time to trek and explore the caves of Antharagange. We decided to visit only the temple and keep the trek for some other morning. The place is scenic surrounded by rocky mountain and tall trees. There are guides at the parking who can help explore the caves. The seven villages on top of the hill can be accessed either trekking or by vehicle.

190+ steps lead us to the temple of Lord Shiva and the Sacred stream. Beware of the monkeys that are ready to snatch any eatable.

The source of the sweet sacred water is unknown. We saw people trying to take bath in that water.

There is no option for food. One shop sells water and snacks so better carry food and water.

There is a viewing point on the left from where we can get the glimpse of the rocky mountain. The huge rocks near by offers opportunity for some nice profile pics.

Harsh for the first time did not complete the walk. He caught cold and threw up few times the previous night. He became tired after climbing few steps so Shilpi and Harsh went back to the TT.

The place is a ideal picnic spot for Bangaloreans. Adding this to list of places to visit this year.
