Situated 6 km from the Sagar, in the Shimoga district lays Varadahalli. Amidst the Western Ghats is the place where Agastya Rishi and Ved Vyas went to meditate and perform his Sadhana. Ved Vyas put the durgambha idol there near a cave where he meditated daily. Sridhar Swamiji attained Moksha at the very place and in his memory his disciples built a Samadhi there. More than 300 steps have been built to reach the Samadhi. Varadahalli is covered with rain forests and the ashram is located at a very beautiful place. Sanatan Ashram has come to attain an international status with lots of seekers coming here every year in search of truth. For people looking for spiritual bliss, this place can be a leading/turning point. Come here during the month of August for great natural scenery.
