HISTORYMagadi region, Karnataka, Andhra and the Veershaivas! Buddhist and Jains?

A fresh day from Bengaluru, travel to Magadi. Start with “places” – places under a tree, grove or amongst rocks. We may glance at some things of Kempegowda. But, once at this hidden place, the peace of it will evoke the poet in you. Let the peace and quiet seep in. Breathe the fresh clean air, take a pause, take your time – the place did inspire a poet! Spot some things in nature. Locate the hidden history. A little climb and you are set to write your poem.

History

You have not heard of this poet or the place before. You may know the region of Kempegowda – the king associated with Bengaluru. We will see some of his markers, his fort and ponder on them. But our main story is of an even earlier time, and you can actually see the remnants in stone – inscriptions and artefacts. The place still holds its original peace and quiet. Can you spot and read like archaeologists? Water is a serious business here!

GEO

Wondered about the hills around Bengaluru, do the rocks say something? Do the hills say something? Did someone say a river begins here?

ECO

With its undisturbed local flora and fauna, intimate and untamed, you get to observe and spot things in nature. You could spot some birds, or beetles or who knows some special frog!
