Huligemmandevi Kolla Waterfalls
After long tiring weeks of work we planned a trek to badami though i had visited this place this time it was with my cousins as planned we first went to Mhakuta where we visited goddess Mahakuteshwara temple later we went to Huligemmandevi kolla waterfalls, as like many falls which I have seen I had imagined it to be a very big fall after good rains,
but when we reached this place I was in for a big surprise though it was a Big waterfall with enough water it was falling from a glorious height water spraying from almost 300ft surrounded by red rocky mountains it was a different kind of pleasure watching this very different from any other falls seen till now, one more amazing thing was we could go behind the fall it was like a screen a sheet of water covering with a small temple and a large cave to be screened by pearls like a curtain an amazing splendid view!
Right time to visit this place is from august - November, a cool dip in this herbal water is an added pleasure,
Later we visited Pattadakallu temple which contains a group of 10 major temples surrounded by minor shriners & plinths each depicting the architecture of the Chalukyas of Kalyani. Overall a pleasurable trip with a unique waterfall to add to our experience.
