Kundadri hill station in Karnataka


The unspoilt Kundadri hill station in Karnataka situated in Teerthahalli taluk of Shimoga, still remains one of the favorite spots for tourists keen in mountain trekking. The mountains are unexplored and one can feel the excitement in discovering new pathways to the peak. Kundadri hill station is a huge monolithic rock formation about 3200 feet above sea level. It is covered with dense evergreen forests.

A seventeenth century Jain temple is situated on the hilltop amidst the serenity that belongs to the mountains. Beside the temple there are two ponds with placid water and lotus blooming. Kundadri named after the Jain monk, Kundakundacharya who was said to have practiced severe penance here throngs with Jain Pilgrims during the Makar Sankranti.Holiday vacation
