Hello Trekkers!

Bheemana Kindi is located at a distance of 90 km from Bengaluru city with an altitude of 1057m ASL is a good trekking point in kabbalu forest with historic references to pandavas during excile.
It is one of the best trek for beginners with the trail being easy to moderate till the peak.

Kindi means hole/window or a passage. As per historical references when Pandavas were at Agnathvasa, Kunti mata lost her way in the Kabbalu forest. That is when Bheema using his mace made an arc on the big boulder so that the path could be seen far away and Kunti mata could walk.

However geologists consider it to be the doing of weathering and erosion. The huge arc has an height of 100 ft and width of 50ft.
At the foothills there is a small shiva temple. At the peak there is a Basaweshwara temple. The Arc is about 100 feet tall and has a width of 50 feet.
