There is a temple from where the trek starts. There is a hawker selling cucumber which is location for the caves. One is dry the second has a small stream running. It is recommended to hire a local guide if u plan to venture inside the caves.

People who like little bit of trekking, climbing steps and view the nature from top, here is a place to visit. There are only 200 steps and when you the top, you wiil have darshan of KashiVishwnatha, small temple, An elderly person sits in the corner, playing nagasvara, expecting a small money from you.
Monkeys of all sizes, old, young, mothers, and some aggressive are your constant companions. They always looking for eatables from you, sometimes snatching from.you.
It is about two hours visit and not very strenuous and a good exercise for the body. Open throughout the year.

Went there for a visit along with my family which is located around 70km from Bangalore. After taking a diversion near kolar, it is moderately difficult to reach the place as we have to pass through very narrow lanes. There is ample parking space and they charge you INR 20 for parking your car. Monkeys are a big menace and we cannot take any food items along with you.

The place is very scenic and one can enjoy the atmosphere around. After climbing all the steps, we will reach Lord Vishveswara temple. Next to the temple there is a big pond which is tragically empty. Near the pond one can see water coming continuously out of the mouth of the bull which is believed to be sacred. One can have a dip under the water if interested.

After having the darshan, one can proceed to trekking or else there isn't much to spend time there. There is a view point on the way to the temple. Overall it is a good place to visit once.

This is located some 6 km interior from kolar. We went on a rainy day and the place have around 200steps to the top of the Siva temple.
There is around 45 steps for a view point. Parking is 10rupees. The caves should go little from this temple.
