    BMTC doesn’t come under Bangaluru I guess

  3. Elbert says:

    But even BMTC has not changed it. Still it is “Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation”.
    I remember a dialogue from Naygan film “Avane Nirutha Sollu Naan Niruthuren” (Translation:- Let him stop first)

  4. Karthik says:

    I agree. But I think it will take time. Even for Bengaluru. Still there is confusion among people between Bangalore/Bengaluru/Bengalooru. May be the regional script is spelled properly. It is not so easy to cope up with name change for a place /city.

  5. Vivek says:

    Well, This is because of a small misconception. If you check government milestones, green distance boards and Karnataka tourism boards. The name is “ShivanaSamudra”. And it’s official too. If we don’t use the official name. Who will? Still “Bangalore” has not become “Bengaluru” because of this.

  6. Karthik says:

    This confusion is always there. Even the locals and cab drivers know it by shivasamudram falls. I think this common name is more famous than the actual Shivanasamudra. But what is in the name as far as the cab driver takes me to the right spot.

  7. Vivek says:

    It is ShivanaSamudra

  8. Praveena says:

    Is it shivasamudram or sivasamudram?

  9. Karthik says:
    Now that it is cloudy most of the days. It will be really good to visit the shivasamudra waterfall this time. The falls in the water might not be at its peak but if there is a heavy flow.. you can even enter the falls and enjoy it. If you are visiting shivasamudra don’t ever the miss the talakadu river. The road from shivasamudura to talkadu is not so good. So plan you travel accordingly
