Shivaganga is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Bangalore. This is a temple,which is located on the top of a hill, 8 kilometers from Dabas Pet, on the National Highway 4.
Shiva Ganga is a hill about 50 km from Bangalore, 20 km ahead of Tumkur. It’s a pretty tall hill with two Shiva temples, one very close to the foot of the hill and another, that’s possibly around 5 km uphill! The deities are “Gangadhareshwara”, and his consort “Swarnambha”.
The place is just fantastic, with breathtaking views from the high altitudes. Brilliant are the views of the surrounding city, the nearby `pushkarini’ or pond, from the top of the hill. Most of the place is rocky, with railings to hold on to as you climb, and monkeys to make sure you don’t take any offerings to the deity on top.
There is considerable diversity in their nesting and feeding behavior. Sivagangai Tourist Attractions place is near Tiruppathur.Southindiatourtravel.com provides information on Sivagangai Tourism and different Sivagangai Tourist Attractions places around South India.
