History of Chandragiri Hill

According to the history the hill started in 300 BC when last Shruthakevali Bhadrabahu and Chandragupta Maurya visited the place in order to attain religious peace. The small hill derives its name of Chandra from the fact that Chandragupta was the first of the rishis (the holy man) who lived and performed penance there.
Kalbappu was the early name of the hill and it dominates the history of the town of Shravanabelagola between 3rd century BC and 12th century AD. The Jain traditions link the Maurya Empire Emperor Chandragupta and his teacher Bhadrabahu with this place. 92 are located on the Small Hill out of the total number of 106 memorials found at Shravanabelagola, Of these, about 47 memorials of monks, 9 of nuns, and 5 of householders belong to the 7th and 8th century. This points out at the popularity of the custom, and of its extensive prevalence on the Small Hill.
As per Hindu Mythology, this is believed to be the place where Satidevi’s forehead was fallen off her body when lord Mahadev carried her dead body. Also, it is believed that because of the blessing of Ichhyashwor Mahadev, King Prithvi Narayan Shah was successful in taking over the Kathmandu Valley.
