More than just a weekend halt-Chitradurga

Walking here will be like walking into a painting. Thought he city is really in a mess I thought. They should really take care the filth is far from the fort also. No occupation must be allowed around the fort, but no, this is India, its like this is the fort and there are 10 gallis adjoining it.

Apart from all of the mess, Chitradurga is so beautiful, if a painter goes here, she may decide to stay back there, if a writer goes, he may start his novel there. Its very inspiring. I felt just 2 days aren't enough to explore this place. Apart from the fort which takes more than hours, and where you go multiple visits theres a lot. If you stay at mayura Yatri nivas, which you should, take a right and you go to the fort entrance, but take a left and you go into a small trek of about 100 mts which leads you to a small temple which is a 17 century temple, its not all that written about but we went there. It has shiva there. Its a small walk down the rocks.

There are many such walks in Chitradurga, Joggimatti, Chandravalli hills, Adumalleshwara temple in joggimatti, Vanivillas sagar dam. If you have the time pre plan and stay at jogimatti forest camp.

We walked a lot, climbed a lot and basically spent a lot of time staring at rocks and caves, and wondering what it was like. There is a lot of history there, like the famous Onnake - Obbava story, the story of how Hyder Ali finally took over, the fort and its structure, its winding roads, its stones, its temples inside, it is fascinating. Its still unspoilt. Hope it remains so.

VaniVillas sagar dam, is a beauty, you must be prepared to climb and walk a lot in this holiday, not for the lazy holiday I must say. Food was good at Mayura.

An ancient archeological sight

I had been to chitradurga in November 2014. Chitradurga is the birth-place of Freedom fighter and veteran congressman and former Chief Minister of Karnataka S Nijalingappa. He hailed from Hiriyur town in Chitradurga District. Around Chitradurga, Chandravalli is an ancient archeological sight. Jogimatti is situated 10 kilometers from chitradurga and this hillock is situated at a height of 3803 feet, which is the highest in Chitradurga district. The vani vilas sagar is 32 kilometres from chitradurga town and has a storage capacity of 162 feet. This was built by the Mysore rulers across the river Vedavathi. The chitradurga fort is a must-visit any part of the year to relish the bravery and great sacrifice of onake obavva against Hyder ali's invasion of chitradurga.
