Savana Durga Hill - Magadi - Bangalore

Savana Durga Hill (Temple at the top of the hill)
Savana Durga Hill (Means forth of death).

History says: This was a location for the making of David Lean's movie Passage to India.
The hill rises to 1226 m above mean sea level.
Savana Durga is situated on Magadi Road. It is around 70 km from Bangalore City.
On the way to Savana Durga you will find ChamarajaSagar Water Treatment Plan (on your right). Magadi Road is also known as State Highway 17E. When you cross the 50 km mark, you will start seeing the monolithic rock structure. You will have to turn left from the highway and travel another 12 km before making another left turn to travel 3 km. At the end of that 3 km stretch, you will find Savana Durga.

And there is no need to give any fees to entire the place. There are some guides who can guide you. But I don’t think is necessary. Because the road itself will guide you to reach at the top. But don’t forget the lane of the road.
To see there is he monolithic proportions of Stalinis…
