About The Event
Quick Summary :
Nijagallu Betta is just 45km 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, it 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 countryside, NH4, and on a clear day the beautiful Silhouette of the magnificent Shivagange.
