Ramadevara Betta (Hill) is about 99km from Mysuru, 49km from Bengaluru. Located 3 km from Ramnagaram (Ram Nagar) Town in Ramnagaram district. Ramadevara Betta (Hill) is a Hindu shrine rising more than 3000 feet. Lord Ram is said to have visited here during his 14 years exile. There is a Ram temple at the top of the hill. It will give you an awesome feeling as you approach the hill. At the entrance there is a big colorful gate followed by stone carved steps leading to the top of the hill amidst greenery. There are around 400 steps. After climbing around 250 steps you will see a Anjaneya (Hanuman) temple. Here, it is like a little valley with trees and shades made by the rock nearby. On the left you can climb little further to reach the view point. From here one can get a awesome view of the surrounding. One can see the small hills around, rugged terrain. Also, a great place for photography. From here you can see Saptarishi Betta which resembles 7 idols from different angles. Besides this place is a natural pond between two hills called Ram tirtha. Here, you can see deity of Ram, Lakshman and Sita. The temple is over 1000 years old and it was built my Magadi chieftain Kempegowda. Besides, Ram temple there is a way to trek to the top of the rock cliff behind Ram temple. From the top one can get good view. No wonder Hollywood flick A Passage to India and Bollywood flick Sholay was shot here. Coz this is such an amazing scenery place. I won’t be surprised if Masters of the Universe Movie gets filmed here too, as it reminds me of Castle Grayskull. Overall a good spot for quick one day trip
