Entrance to the Hill from Karnataka State

Entrance to the Hill from Tamil Nadu State

Transportation facilities from a number of places from Karnataka State as well as Tamil Nadu State are there to Sri Male Mahadeshwara Hills and back.

There are two paths from Karnataka & Tamil Nadu entrances - Taalabetta.  One the Snake's Route (Bus road) which is 19 kms. distance to the temple, the other Bull's Route (Walk route) which is 8 kms.  The Bull's Route will be with the steps & in olden days  when there were no buses devotees were using this route.  Even today devotees used to walk & climb the hill in this path.

There is a belief that the devotees coming to the hills should stop their vehicles at the Taalabetta & put the "Dhoopa" to the Lord & proceed.  It is good to check the vehicle's break etc. at this spot as the hair-pin curves ahead.
