A quick outing spot, 2 hrs from Bangalore city center. We decided to go here after getting out of NICE road.

Nothing great except for a scenic hill top view and a temple. You would like it if you enjoy a stroll in a park.

Roads are good via Tumkur highway, absolutely no food or restaurants available (not even in Tumkur).

Avoid this place if you have something else planned around Bangalore.

It is an average place to visit except to see couple of temples around. However view of the entire town is breath taking.

Can include nearby deer park and medicinal park along with this trip.

NOTE: Not suggested for elders, as you need to take around 200 steps to see a temple. Also, basic facilities like washroom, restaurants not present. Need to carry them though.

About 70 KMS from Yeswantpur on Tumkur road, Devarayan durga is a charming hillock attraction. It has 2 temples between the base and summit of the hill. Pros & Cons of this attraction:

Pros

- Nice old temple with nice architecture
- well maintained roads while going from Yeswantpur - Kyatsandra- Deverayan Durga
- Good picnic option in nearby deer park
- Bottled water, chips, bajji/bonda and dry Bhel available at temple entrance from street vendors
- Well maintained and very clean, the temple and the route to temple. Almost looks like a plastic free zone. Hopefully all of us maintain it the same way.
- Kids (3-6 Yrs) loved running around the open spaces.

Cons

- No restaurants nearby, either pack food or eat after temple darshan on tumkur road
- The top summit temple ( Yoga Narashima) is a climb of about 100 step steps, old folks may have an issue climbing
- Loads of monkeys in temple, hence do not carry any eatable or they will grab it.

Best option would be to leave by 9:30 AM, Finish temple darshan by 12:30 -1Pm, have packed lunch at deer park and get back home by 4-5 PM.

This place is a nice one day trip from Bangalore. I was here with my wife in December 2014. From Bangalore head towards Tumkur, once you reach Dobbespet, take a right turn under the highway bridge towards Devarayana Durga. From Dobbespet it's around 20 km. You'll fing Karnataka tourism board all over to make your way easy. Once you reach temple Base it takes another 15-20 minutes to climb the top. Well constructed stairs make the journey easier. The premises is quite clean, however as usual humans leave their footprints in the name of garbage, so many parts of the hill have some garbage. There was a small lake near the temple at the top, was not so clean. Some anti-social elements were there, however not much. There were no restaurants nearby. However at the foothills you'll find some snacks and cold drinks. So carry food along. In terms of views from temple, there was not quite much. Couple of spots, that's it. Quite a lot of monkeys were there so beware, avoid eating in front of them. Temple was quite old, and well maintained. For a day trip this place is a good choice. I think if you go during monsoon it would be more fun. Avoid during summers as it's quite hot during that time.
