Sholay. Ramgad. Ramanagaram. Who can ever forget the iconic movie of Hindi Cinema?
It was Sunday afternoon. With nothing much to do, we decided to drive out to check out the landscape where the Bollywood blockbuster “Sholay” was shot in seventies. We had been there 15 years back when the place was fairly unknown.
We were not disappointed. The place remain serene with not much crowd even on Sunday afternoon! The region where Sholay was shot is now a protected sanctuary for vultures – one of its kind in the country. We had not taken our binoculars and hence could not see many of the winged ones.
Ramadevara Betta – Hill of Lord Rama – as it is locally known is famous for the hill with a small temple dedicated to Lord Rama. It is not the temple but the landscape around it which is stunning. Here is a glimpse……..Click on the pictures to see them in larger size…..
This place requires a detailed post. We will come back with details soon.
