The name Kauchgal (ಕೌಚ್ಗಲ್) means Covered with Stone/Rock in Kannada and hence the name Kauchgal for this Hill.



As we are travel enthusiasts, We love exploring Off-beat places in and around us. We zeroed on this Kachgal Hill which is not known to many. We love exploring places, talking to new people and hearing about the significance of the place make us much happier.

The day started with planning to this beautiful location. On wonderful Saturday morning at 9:00 AM, we started to this place. After having breakfast at home, we reached the place easily from Bangalore city which is around 40 Kms from Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore. There are two ways to reach, one is taking left after "Namaste Bangalore Hotel" via Tumkur Road second one, will get deviation after passing Nelamangala service road. Google map will lead the route to the destination.

While on the way to this place, one can see lush green paddy fields spread across in acres and can get amazing view of many villages with a lot of ponds filled with water. We stopped in 2-3 places on the way to capture some pics in our camera.

There was no much information about this place when we were planning. Ideally, It is a cave temple under the huge rock and it belongs to Solur Village Magadi taluk of Ramanagara district. This place is under the jurisdiction of the Reserve Forest and comes under the forest range of Devanahalli. It is around 40 km from Bangalore city and comes closer to Shivagange Hill. It is very calm place away from Hustle and bustle of the city. This is ideal place for nature lovers and a good place to spend time with family and friends. It is recommended to plan early in the morning as there will be good vibes and also get the Darshana of the Lord Muneshwara Swamy. The priest opens the temple at 8 AM onwards every day and special pooja offered on every Monday and Friday.
