water water!!

(Repost)

Antaragange,Kolar, Karnataka,India 

A small hill and has a temple on top of that and there is a pond formed by a continuous flow of underground water from the mouth of a Basava (stone bull). This is a  pilgrimage place for hindus also.
Interestingly there is lack of drinking water in the surrounding villages and village  people send their kids to get this sweet water . These kids climb 200+ stair cases twice in a day to get some fresh water and a nice swim in the pond!!!

cans lined up waiting for kids to finish their swim!

Reaching Tips:  Bangalore>Kolar> Antaragange  .Ask for direction after you reach Kolar. it is just 5-6  km from Kolar.

Photography Tips: Good place to shoot some candid. Take some chocolates for the kids and they can pose for you the way you like. ALso there are some caves around for some travel shots.
