Antara Gange (also known as Anthargange) is a mountain situated in the Shathashrunga mountain range in the southeastern portion of the Indian state of Karnataka, Kolar district. Antara Gange literally means "Ganges from deep" in Kannada. It is about two miles from the town of Kolar and seventy kilometers from Bangalore. Antara Gange is famous for Sri Kashi Vishweshwara temple, also known as Kashi of South. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. In the temple is a pond which gets a continuous flow of underground water from the mouth of a Basava (stone bull). It is believed that drinking water from the pond cleanse one from many diseases.

Way to Antar Gange caves is a steep and narrow path behind the temple to top of the mountain. (Now, the entry to the caves is restricted) The caves are 3-4 km from the temple. There are seven villages on this mountain, including Therhalli. The mountain consists of granite rocks and lot of caves around. Trekking in and around caves is popular here. Tourists also do night trekking and camping here, especially in summer months.

  • Beautiful trekking spot near kolar , < 2 hours from Bangalore. Initially steps to climb until temple , later on the rocks. The real fun is when you explore the caves ( impossible to explore complete.....  more »
  • Visited to Antara Gange during end of August. It was first drive post lock-down and enjoyed the drive from Bengaluru thoroughly. There are lot of monkeys around. Visitors need to be careful with food....  more »
  • A nice getaway from Bangalore. Be prepared to walk a lot. Temple on top with loud music. Lots of wild monkeys. Trekk ahead to reach Cave entrance. Small kids/Youngsters will act as guides saying it's too long, too deep, blah blah. Don't fall for them. 2 caves: Water cave is nothing but crawling in n out for 50 meters. No proper path. The other cave is worth a try. Take lots of water, snacks. PS: Take time out and Relax on top of any Stone and talk about life.
  • Around 85km from Bangalore city and a bike ride with friends and family will boost the fun better to carry water bottle while trekking and be aware of monkeys as they ll snatch the food there are two caves on the top of mountain enjoy it.Temple is not that much well maintained but one can find breakfast it starts from 6am
