Madhugiri Betta

Namuru chandvo Nemuru chandvo...........So goes the kannada song ( Is my city beautiful or yours..), this had been the topic for my wife who believes that the Madhugiri hillock is the second biggest monolithic rock in Asia, and I argue it is the Bellary rock, Well after seeing both I can only say the measurements for Bellary Hillock is available on the net, none for madhugiri, the case rests, but then Savandura too lays its claim.

This is the Hillock
