Located at Tumkur District. It 85 Km from Bangalore. Trekking on this hills is very easy as it has around 460 steps that will take you to the top of the hillock. Mandargiri is surrounded with boulders of many shapes and sizes, a haven for photographers.

There are three things to see here --

1. A Pinchi shaped 81 feet Guru Mandir.

2. The mukha mantapa next to the Pinchi has a tall statue of Chandranatha Tirthankara. And at the top of this hillock is a temple complex with 4 small but ancient temples that date back 800 – 1000 years. Two are dedicated to Chandranatha and the remaining two to Parsavnath.

3. The temples are clean and very well maintained. There is no crowd. You have to take the keys from the base when you go up .
