thus this is called as Garuda Naga Lingeshwara there is dust this is the way through which children come but we adults are coming through this this is 80 feet underground oh we are 80 feet underground is it? this was the conference hall our Kannadas first king Mayura Verma he created this cave we are 80 feet underground this is the place where he used to sit for secret conferences we are now at this place what all technology was available to our ancestors we can know from this cave and please do not say that this too was done by aliens this too was done by our ancestors only, they with hard work with their own hands have created this that credit we should not give to aliens this was definitely done solely by our ancestors feel so proud that this place is of such olden times this is a cave with so much of history now let us see this cave along with our Guide Shivanna Chandravalli cave from Chitradurga is around 4 kms away the location details is available in the description box for food at chitradurga i will give details of three restaurants those are also restaurants with some history after tasting the places that we liked are the ones we are showing today The people of chitradurga, through comment can inform about the other places of food restaurants or hotels good places for food you can inform it will help the tourist who come here vehicles can come up to this point this board mentions that from morning 6 am to evening 6 pm entry is permitted we were not aware, when we checked in internet it was mentioned that this place opens at 10 am that is why we came late, if not we would have come early when coming here it is best to come here early to avoid the heat this is a prehistoric place there is board about it they have stuck a poster on that board and made it impossible to read that board only for Park entry is from 6am to 6 pm to go to chandravalli cave at 10 it opens accordingly you can plan and come we have come to Hulegundi Siddeshwara temple here on this boulder and inscription is written to know what is written in this inscription Arenalli Dharmendra kumar, a historian, in one of his videos has explained this in his video in that video he not only reads what is written here but also explains the meaning of it i video link to it is available in the description the inscription that he speaks about is right here you can notice after winning the war against Pallavas the first, one and only, independent kannada Kingdom was built by the Kadambas, Mayura Verma the place where he raised his army is this, in that Davalappa gudda is where Mayura verma built his army if you ask, what the proof you have for this? see the boulder near that Siddeshwara temple on that boulder is this inscription available what does that inscription read? Kadambanam Mayura Vermanam thathakam drudamkutham, abhiroopam, rachithava vanasakam, sthapithva upanachama if you see here notice the sun and moon marking, under it are three lines inscription written there, all that is getting erased now it is not clearly visible to us, how much of it if will appear through camera, i am not sure how long this will survive i dont know temple is locked at present nothing is visible right? looks like construction materials Kannadas first and foremost king Mayura Verma built this lake on that hill there he builds his army when i had come here few years ago the steps here were not like this during my previous visit i had clicked few pictures i will keep showing those pictures as well between the video the white mark on those boulders, those are Jyothiraj famously known as Kothiraj Spiderman of India, those are the marks of his climbing you can see how nicely he has climbed up you can see the olden days water tank this is placed here so that before entering temple to wash you feet with water this is called as Bane under neath this boulder is the Pancha lingeshwara now it has become Nava lingeshwara after one swamiji came here. in which year did he come here? in 15th century the swamiji came from Ankali He installed four lingas here later when pandavas came here during their exile, they installed fife more linga here although there are nine lingas here, yet it is known as Panchalingeshwara you can go inside and see here pandavas installed Pancha lingas hence it is known as Pancha lingeshwara pandavas were five people so in their memory each one installed one statue this side there are four lingas some say this was installed by by but for me this was installed by this was installed by pandavas this was installed by the swamijis in 15th century these five lingas were installed by the pandavas there is archakaru here here there are tourism guides they are the ones who light the lamp here as well along with that they guide us too these four lingas swamiji came here in 15th century and installed here the inscription of the temple is also here this temple is pancha lingeshwara in Dwaparayuga when padavas came here they installed these five lingas here Bhima, arjuna, nakula sahadeva Dharmaraya even now there are 9 lingas in here a swamijij who came here from Ankali installed four lingas here totally there are nine lingas yet it is known as pancha linga this is known as Chandravalli thota(Garden) or Chandravalli cave this was created during the times of our Kannadas first ruler Mayura verma he lost in a battle against the pallavas gets disappointed and gives another try here this was done for their safety he built his army here on a near by hill named as Davalappana gudda this is the first enterance known as Nandi door why they created nandi door is because he sits calmly in front of shiva that is why he come slowly as a a mark of slow movement this door is installed to get down there are seven steps all those seven steps are of varing size, one is small the other is bid, the next is small and so on why they have made such is because when attacking, enemies come will keep their legs in similar style and come this is made such with an intention of making the enemies to fall this is where the swamji used to sit and give his sermon in 15th century this was created around 4th century back then this was done in 15th century a swamiji came known as Pardeshiappa when he came here insdie what ever is there now he got all that improvised initially our ancestors used to build a big house, then we used to get it renovated Similar to that when that swamji came here, he made cot to sleep on, drawing room, treasury all that you can see inside, he has done it as his home it is uneven here have to be careful when getting down nandi entrance one has to bend and enter these steps have difference these seven steps, yes observe this it is different from one and another come down height , width all are different of each of the steps this is the place where the soldier can sit and keep watch to keep track of who is coming in he will be seated in dark and the person entering will come from well light area who ever come s he will get to know but person coming from outside will not know that is why this is known as the secret way see now from here you can see who is entering who is here they cannot see by the time they reach here the one inside can attack them then go inside and escape look above there are slabs and beams all this is created under one big boulder this is second door known as Gaja dwara on top is the Ganesha and below is the Poornakumba Kalasa for starting any good work one does pooje to vinayaka and then do installation on Poornakumba kalasa symbolic to that this has been created, on the rear side there are you can see few designs of elephants that is why this is known as Gaja dwara little ahead the place is a little light suddenly see the natural boulder this is the one single boulder that you will see here where is the elephant oh elephant is here, above we saw the slab and beam previously due to these elephants this is called as Gaja dwara have you seen this place before? yes, then too we had taken a guide this is also known as Ankali Mutta Chandravalli cave, Ankali mutta refers to a swami who would have Belagavi districts Gokaks Ankali swamiji would have come here his name was Paradeshappa hence this cave is also known as Paradeshappana cave or Ankali muttu it is famously known as why it is called chandravalli? because our kannadas first ruler Mayura Verma in his time this was created and hence the name was channdanavathi or chandanavati thus it become chandanavalli cave or chandavalli tota here if you came by the parking lot way on either side of that parking lot it is said that there were Gardens there now all that garden has been destroyed. now only the lake and the cave is available to be see this is a samadhi or Mausoleum but also known as Dhyana pita this is the place where all the worship articles are placed from here the shivalinga is visible these are for placing the lamps like the way we are using torch here back then they used to use the sticks tied with cloth and fire lit to it for light there is a room there in those days the pooje articles where kept there there is no pooje here is it? no one lights the lamp here is it? no sir this is the place where the worship articles where kept the room is up till there these all are for placing the lamps come along Babu if not you will lose your way there are bats this is the bathroom they used to take bath here and go there for performing the pooje Psrdeshappa Swamiji in those days the rain water which used to fall used to come down through this drain way and get collected in this tank here in free time they would stock water from the Lake this is the place where the swamji would sit for his bath the bath water would go through his drainage notice the hole this was the drainage it flows outside after bath this is the place for resting it is like a cot for resting here you can see there are three doors on here, one here and one here in those days if there was war if in case of defeat, then the Kings safety was fur most, thousands of soldiers even if captured, the King could not be captured only if the King was captured only then the kingdom would be captured that is why this is known as Secret passage this route has been close by ASI, in those days this would connect to Baba budanagiri, uchengidurga Srirangaptana, they used to go till there, but there was no opening there we have to go here and then come came the same way ASI have closed it observe the roof now a days we use iron and all for concrete they have used stones for plastering
