Nandi Hill Tour in 1 day
Bengaluru - Nandi Hills
Nandi Hills is an ancient hill fortress approximately 60 km from the city of Bengaluru. Nandi Hills was called Ananda Giri or ‘The Hill of Happiness’. It is also commonly called Nandidurga because of the fort built here by the ruler Tipu Sultan and the hills resemble the sleeping bull, Nandi.
The ancient Nandi temple with a 1,000-year-old sculpture of Nandi placed high on a hill, is a big pilgrim & tourist attraction. You can also visit a beautiful and ancient temple, Bhoga Nandeshwar Temple which is situated at the base of Nandi Hills, making it the perfect place for a weekend break and a popular picnic destination. It is twinned with the Yoga Nandeeshwar Temple, which is situated at the top of the hills.
Both temples are dedicated to Lord Shiva. The twin temple concept is popular only in Karnataka, where two temples, both dedicated to the same deity are built, one at the top and the other at the bottom of a hill.
Visit Tipu Sultan's Fort which is also known as, Tashk-e-Jannat, which means “Heaven’s Envy”, Tipu Sultan’s Fort is a destination that is of interest to all the visitors at Nandi Hills. Also, visit Tipu's Drop, a 2,000-foot (600-meter) drop from where Tipu Sultan had his condemned prisoners thrown to death off the cliff side.
Amruth Sarovar, a beautiful lake brimming with water all the year round is worth a visit. This Sarovar is a beautiful water body that has been formed by perennial springs. It is also the prime water source for the area. A visit at night is a must, to see the beauty of the sparkling clear water in the moonlight. Very close to, it is the chabootara, (platform) where Tipu Sultan used to pray.
