There are two main temples at Shivaganga--Gavi Gangadhareshwara Cave Temple and Honnadevi Temple. The followers need to climb a number of stairs to arrive at the temples. The Patalaganga is situated between the two temples. This is a natural spring. The travelers can take rest at this monolithic rock while climbing the huge stairs.
This ancient town houses old temples and it is probably for this reason that it is often referred to as Dakshin Kashi or Varanasi of Southern India. Shivaganga in Karnataka lies in the Tumkur district. The nearest railway station is 12 kilometers away. This religious site is also accessible by road from Bangalore.
