We were planning for this trip from long time, first we planned it on Diwali but it got cancelled due to heavy rain. After two weeks we finally managed everything, we started at early morning 4.30 am from Indiranagar (Bangalore). Thumping sound of royal Enfield and the cold whether at morning refreshed us We took the Mysore highway and taking a small cut road at right which pass through Kumbalgodu state forest was exciting but bit scary at early morning because we couldn't find more than one or two vehicle in our entire trip. Then we reach savandurga- Manchnabele road by taking a left, on the way we saw the beautiful view of Manchnabele dam. Then through magadi-Ramanagara road and then savandurga road which passes through savandurga state forest we reach our destination. Savandurga which is considered as the largest monolith hills in Asia was giving us a delightful view from the down. There is a Veerabhadraswamy temple situated at the foot of the hill. we parked our bike there near by and started climbing right away. But the way we choose was hard and steep so we went back and find out there is a better way which are marked with yellow paint which is very difficult to notice at low light. After few steps itself we find out that it is not going to be an easy task, your shoes should have good grip. In some places slope is almost 80°, we have to do spider crawl. There are the remains of the fort build by kempegowda on the top of the hill as well as on the way were you can take rest in between trekking. We didn't get much exhausted as we were taking pics and videos of the mesmerizing views around in every 10-15 minutes.
This palace is the Palace Gardens located in the heart of the city was constructed in 1887 by the Wodeyar Dynasty. The look of the palace is just like one of those medieval castles of England. It is said that this Tudor style palace was inspired from the Windsor Castle of England. The design and beauty of the Windsor Castle is said to have impressed Raja Chamarajendra Wodeyar so much that he decided to make this palace. The palace, though it has lost much of its previous grandeur, still manages to stand stunning. The garden and lawn around the palace is well maintained and the castle is now used for exhibitions and large cultural programs. As you enter the palace, it is the ballroom of the king and on the first floor is the assembly halls. The walls are intricately decorated and Yellow seems to have been a favorite of the king. There are ornate walls and also a place with a veil where the ladies used to sit while the assembly was in progress. The castle is mainly carved in wood and the paintings of Raja Ravi Verma, a court artist adorns many of the walls here.
