About Savanadurga:

This is a huge single rock. situated approx. 60 kms from bangalore near Magadi town, on Bangalore-Magadi Road. No charges, i.e its free to climb. Below this rock there is a temple (very few people live there), where people mainly visit for praying. but, very few go to the top and whoever goes takes the relatively easy round about path. but, there is a difficult path which is straight up. Next the temple there is a botanical garden maintained by the govt. of karnataka.
