Description

Devarayanadurga (popular among Tumakuru residents as 'DD') is a small hamlet located close to 4,000 feet above sea level, about 75 minutes' drive from Bengaluru and about 20 minutes by road from Tumakuru City. 'DD' is famous for its temples as well as the woods surrounding it that teem with wildlife. It is one of India's oldest wilderness areas.
We will narrate from our personal experiences of this area as well as fascinating tales hidden in 18th century British Raj literature. These include the Battle of Devarayanadurga (1791) where Mysoreans defended this once prosperous district headquarter against the combined might of the British forces allied with Marathas. These hills also resonate with numerous shikar tales including tiger hunts. Visitors get to explore the ramparts of this picturesque hill fort, the circular bastions that once housed the best of big guns manufactured in Mysore Kingdom, some of the over a dozen gates that protected this once bustling settlement apart from the centuries' old temples, all amidst lush, cloud kissed hills.
