Dodda Sampige Mara - Review

It literally means a large “Champak Tree”, is a large sacred grove of India of the Soliga people. The tree is considered to be quite a few years old and provides protection and shade to several sacred lingas that are worshipped in the area. Located on the banks of the river “Bhargavi”, it sees festivities and celebrations during Shivaratri. The place blossoms into red and yellow colored flowers in the month of April, giving the whole canopy a bridal look. Legend says that for the Soliga tribe Dodda Sampige Mara is a deity who performs the fire dance during Mahashivratri. The tree symbolises the relation of the local tribes with Mother Nature. A lot of fun and adventure activities can be enjoyed around this area.
