Savandurga is a famous hill located in the Indian state of Karnataka, and is one of the tourist regulars in the entire region. The general interest shown by tourists from all over the country is well justified, as Savandurga is one of the largest monolith hills in the entire world. This means that the Savandurga hill is composed entirely of only one rock, which spans a height of about one thousand two hundred and twenty six meters (1226 m). The monolithic structure is mainly made of basic dykes, granites, gneiss and laterites.

Savandurga is a serene location, given its calm surroundings and lush beauty. Yet another advantage is the hill’s proximity to the city of Bangalore, which makes it easily accessible. Savandurga has two minor hills, mainly Karigudda and Biligudda. In the local language, Karigudda means Black Hill and Biligudda means White Hill. These two hills comprise the collective hill of Savandurga.

Savandurga is oft visited by tourists because the region has a very famous temple too. This temple, called the Savandi Veerabhadreshwara Swamy temple, is located in the foothills of Savandurga. This temple and the Narasimha Swamy temple (also present in the foothills of Savandurga) are two major temples that tourists visiting Savandurga normally swarm to. Savandurga is also an ideal spot for trekking in South India.
