About The Event
Nijagallu Betta is located just 65km from Bangalore and about 20km from Tumkur. It is one of the best known weekend getaway options from Bangalore.
Ruins have their own charm with historical importance and Nijagal Betta is full of ruined caves, forts and temples. A mid-seventeenth century fort, build by Chikkadevaraya Wadiyar adorns this hillock. Here in Nijagallu Betta, its believed that a war was fought between Hyder Ali and Peshwa Madhav Rao. On the trekking route, there are a set of caves that houses a small Shiva shrine and Dargah. Due to loose gravel, initially the climb is noted to be tough but as you climb further, it becomes rocky and easier for trekking. The trekking route is dotted with sculptures from the Hoysala period. From the hilltop, one can see the country side, NH4 and on a clear day the beautiful Silhouette of the magnificent Shivagange.
