The Shivagange hillock itself resembles the form of a Shiva Linga when
viewed from a distance, and it also hosts 5 temples. At the entryway, there is
a life-sized statue of Lord Ganesha and a few steps above is the Gavi
Gangadhareshwara Temple devoted to Lord Shiva. According to followers, the
Shiva Linga on the mountain has miraculous properties and if ghee is poured on
to it, the ghee will instantly turn into butter.
Another interesting site to visit is the Olakal Theertha, a small hole
where you can insert your hand, and if you are lucky you might be able to touch
the water. It is believed that those who are able to touch the water will have
their wishes come true. On the top of the hill, there are two Nandi holy bulls
carved out directly from the monolithic stone. The climb is difficult and
strenuous, but the view from the peak is glorious and well worth all the
effort. On the descent, there is another small temple called the Paathala Gange
Temple devoted to Lord Shiva and decorated with ancient Naga (serpent) statues.
