Anthargange is an ideal location for light trek, rock climbing and camping. Big and small boulders have heaped to form cave like formations offering exhilarating network of cave exploration activity.
Sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, Antargange in Kollar is a hill range with huge volcanic rocks and boulders scattered all over. Thorny shrubs cover the hill, while there is dense plantation forest at the base. Flight of steps, halfway the hill leads to an ancient temple. The spring at this temple is claimed to wash off your sins. The forty-five minutes hill climbing will keep you panting for breath and opens up for an extensive and beautiful green plateau on the top.
Kolar town, the headquarters of this district was formerly known as Kuvalala. Kollar was the first capital of the Gangas, till about the 4th century A.D. In 1004 A.D., the Cholas annexed Kolar with their empire. Later, Kolar came under the Vijayanagar empire, before being taken over by the British in 1768. In 1792, Kolar was given to Tippu Sultan, by the British. Haidar Ali of Mysore was born around 1722 in the tiny village of Budikote, near Kolar. Haidar Ali died in 1782 during the Mysore Wars. His body was embalmed and lay in state for four months before being moved to a mausoleum built by his son, Tipu Sultan, in the middle of a garden on the island of Srirangapatam.
