Shivagange, a hillock situated 56 km from Bangalore, is a combination of temples and scenic beauty that makes it both a pilgrimage as well as an adventure spot. From a distance, the hillock looks like a 'Shiva Linga', with a spring flowing nearby that's locally called Ganga, thereby naming it Shivaganga.
It is also given the name Dakshina Kashi (Kashi of the south) since it's home to various temples (Gangadhareshwara temple, Olakala Teertha, Nandi Statue, Patala Gange, etc.) The stone carving of Nandi ( the bull) is another primary attraction. The hilly feature of the place attracts a lot of adventure sports seekers, providing them opportunities for trekking and rock climbing. All in all, it is a popular getaway for travellers with both religious and adventurous inclinations

With the shape of the hill like the Shiva Linga, Shivagange is a Hindu pilgrimage centre and a perfect adventure hotspot.
The steep rocky terrain is very slippery during the monsoon season, hence making it a risky place to visit.
