Shivagange, a hillock of more than 1000 ft got its name because of the holy shrine of “Lord Shiva”. There are numerous temples of Shiva, Parvathi and Ganga in the hillock. This place is also called as “Dakshina Kaashi” – Kaashi/Varanasi of South India. One strange happening here in Shivagange is, if you do an ‘abhishek’ of ‘ghee’ in the temple, the same ghee turns in to ‘butter’. — No, I’m not kidding. I know few people who have witnessed the same. Hence it is compared with holy shrine Kaashi.

Other places one can visit in the same hill –

Pathala gange -a a belowground spring, where water level goes down during rainy season and increases during summer!!
Olakal teertha — (Olakal = (in Kannada) manual wet-grinder, manual means one has to rotate the top oval shaped stone mannually).
Nandi on top of the hill
Shantala drop
Veerabhadreshwara temple
