Madhugiri Fort Trekking

Madhugiri is a single stone hill. It is the second biggest Monolith in Asia. Settled on its precarious slants is a stronghold. Antaralada Bagilu, Diddibagilu, and Mysuru Gate are the three entryways of the fortification. A progression of entryways prompts the slope. The demolished temple of Gopalakrishna is situated at the top of hill. The construction of the first mudfort was attempted by Raja Hira Gowda in the seventeenth century around 1670 AD. An intriguing episode provoked the Gowda family to considering building a fortification. A stray sheep disappeared around the Madhugiri hillock just to return late in the night trickling with water. This was music to the ears since a spring would be welcome sign for rain lacking range. A choice to build a stronghold was arrived and the assignment was finished. The Gowdas began administering this district based at Madhugiri Fort. 

The name Madhugiri is gotten from the Honeybee states which were predominant in those days towards the northern parts of the Madhugiri fortification. There are two expansive sanctuaries situated in Madhugiri one is Venkatramana and other is Malleswara. There is likewise a Jaina sanctuary on the regions of the Madhugiri fortification.
