Your guide to Nandi Hills
All About Nandi Hills
Towering above the surrounding land, Nandi Hills is the site of an ancient fortress, home to temples, monuments, shrines, and spectacular views. From atop the hill, you’ll feel like you are standing amongst the clouds rather than in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. The best way to experience the hilltop fortress is to arrive early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise from an elevation of nearly 5,000 feet. Take in the history and artistry of the ninth century temple dedicated to Shiva, or the 18th-century summer residence of Tipu Sultan, the former ruler and so-called Tiger of Mysore. At Tipu’s Drop, you’ll find some of the most spectacular views. If you’re looking for a contemplative experience, visit the meditation caves or take advantage of the walking trails while admiring the abundant birdlife and flora.
Adventure seekers can consider cycling the hills or paragliding to get a truly unparalleled experience of this richly rewarding destination. When you’re ready to refuel, there are restaurants and cafes offering a bite to eat with a view.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Nandi Hills?
Nandi Hills is a year-round destination. From June to August, this part of southern India receives moderate rainfall, but pack a raincoat and you can still enjoy much of what is on offer, if not always with clear views. This is the time to concentrate on visiting some of the sheltered sights, like the magnificent Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple or Tipu Sultan’s summer residence. From September to February, expect pleasant weather, ideal for hiking the hills and admiring the Amrita Sarovar spring-fed lake.
March through May can bring hotter temperatures, although there is often a refreshing summer breeze. This is the best time to enjoy the cool of Brahmashram Cave or to venture to nearby Muddenahalli, a village that was home to a well-known artist whose museum features a wide collection of his paintings and writings.
What are the top things to do in Nandi Hills?
Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple
This temple complex is one of the oldest in Karnataka, built during the ninth and 10th centuries. Dedicated to Shiva, the site boasts splendid Dravidian architecture with intricate carvings, elegant pillars, and decorative stone windows that make this temple an architectural marvel. With its breathtaking indoor water pond, Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple is a photographer’s and art-lover’s delight.
Tipu Sultan’s Summer Residence
Tipu Sultan was an important figure in south Indian history, and he had his summer residence at Nandi Hills. Set in a lush garden, the 18th-century building is an excellent example of Indo-Islamic architecture. Constructed of teak wood, it boasts ornate hand-carved pillars, elegant archways, and interiors impressively painted with floral and historical motifs. An onsite museum gives context to who Tipu Sultan was and features artifacts used by him and his family, including clothing, weapons, and crowns.
Amrita Sarovar Lake
Amrita Sarovar, meaning “lake of nectar,” is one of the prime water sources for the region. This pool of emerald water, naturally fed by perennial springs, shimmers in the moonlight amid a tranquil glade of trees. As you linger by the beauty of the water, you may be serenaded by birdsong.
