Shivagange, Dabaspete

4.5
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Bangalore Rural District
Climb a sacred hilltop to get a fabulous panorama of Bengaluru Rural District area at Shivagange, an important Hindu pilgrimage spot. Looking like a shiva linga from one of the sides, the hill also has a spring, ganga, whose water is believed to be sacred. A sculpture of the sacred bull Nandi is carved into the hilltop and there are numerous images of Hindu gods along the trek to the top which you will start from a gopuram at the foot. Standing at 1,368 m (4,488 ft), the hilltop provides a number of observation decks to get spectacular views of the area.

  • Very sacred and scenic place, Unmindful dumping of plastic waste has spoiled the serenity. A few NGOs are trying hard to remove the garbage; I am sure we will regain the paradise lost...  more »

  • Beautiful beginners trekking spot close to Bangalore. From Bangalore it's a half day adventure trip. Good to go during weekdays since there will be crowd which is safe. Else go in large groups. During weekdays carry food and water since stalls operate only during weekends. Beware of monkey's.
  • Great Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva .apart from the temple principle hall of the temple which lies at the base of the hill,there is also a climb up to a number of caves . These caves are dedicated to a number of different Gods and climb up the hill truly feels enriching. If u end up having stamina to get to the top,you will get a birds eye view of the lush green surroundings.
  • For bengaluru people's best place for one day trekking. And we can see Temple's. Its better to going in raining and winter season... Horrible in summer.
  • Must visit place for trek lovers, It has a powerful god also. The temple maintained neatly, but as soon as you start trekking you get to know how plastic ruined our nature, you can see plastic wastes here and there. If you have enough stamina you can see a mesmerizing view from the top of the hill. The parking facilities is also good, which provide free parking. But the entry fee is 30 rupees Happy and safe trekking😉, please don't dispose plastics on the hill
  • A mix place of devotion and adventure. A work of caution- must visit with good grip shoe and avoid sandals especially ladies if you want to go up to the hill wear a good sports shoe 👟 .
