The Basada or Mandaragiri betta (hill) is about 65 kilometres from Bangalore in Tumkur. It’s a well-known pilgrim temple for Jainism. The Mandaragiri is a small hill with 434 steps (~ 500 metres a method) to achieve the height.
Supposedly, the height has 4 Jain temples, which have been closed once I visited. However, the views of the lake from the highest is spectacular and breathtaking.
On the foothills of the Mandaragiri betta is the Peacock temple. It’s a properly constructed Jain temple which has a glance of peacock’s feathers. The temple additionally hosts a giant statue of Mahavir Jain.
That is positively a should go to getaway from Bangalore. The temples and the views from the hill are very fairly.
