Route from Bangalore to Ramanagaram: Bangalore–(take Mysore Road)–12 km–>Kengeri–18 km–>Bidadi–20 km–>Ramanagaram

I took the right turn and reached Ramadevara Betta (Betta means “hill” in Kannada). Ramadevara Betta and its surrounding regions are the same place where the legendary Hindi movie Sholay was shot. There was a nice gate at the entrance:
Inside I saw a Swamiji, near to a stone inscribed sculpture of Lord Hanuman:
There were stairs which lead to the top of the hills:
From there I could see the neighboring hills:
At the top I found a beautiful Gulmohar (Delonix Regia) tree:
