    Shivagange gets its name from the Holy places and temples it hosts. The spring water found here is considered to the sacred water 'Gange'.
    The hillock has few temples atop and a statue of Nandi carved out of single stone is a beauty. It is about two kilometers from the bottom of the hillock where there is a village to the top of the hill. There are many temples all along the way.

    The place being a huge collection of boulders and solid granite rock structures, it invites not just pilgrims but rock climbers and adventure lovers as well. Though there are no bolted routes, there is plenty of climbing.

    The places is mostly crowded all the time, thanks to the temples.
