Overview: Nidagal fort in Pavagada taluk of Tumkur district is one of the important historical places near Bangalore. The fort was held by the Hemavathi Nolamba kings in the 10th century, and was later occupied by the Nidagal Cholas who ruled from this part. Apart from the fort, there are a few important temples at the foothills in the village of Nidagal, like Ramateertha temple, Someshwara temple, Parshwanatha Jain Basadi and Veerabhadra temple, forming a circular pattern, and built at close proximity to each other. Veerabhadra and Someshwara temples have a few Hero stones and inscriptions within the premises.
