It’s interesting to note that Prashanth Neel’s upcoming film Salaar is also being filmed at Kolar Gold Fields. In fact, there are opinions on social media that claim this is the third installment in the KGF series as a whole. The mine that produced 95% of the Indian gold has existed for more than a century.

Is Prabhas Salaar the next franchise of KGF?

Because of the good climate and picturesque surroundings, KGF was sometimes referred to by its British residents as Little England. Beautifully built British bungalows, visually pleasing street design, and well-preserved architecture may all be found throughout the city. Try your hand at putting at the outstanding golf course built in 1885 for British miners’ workers.

From glitters to dust – Kolar Gold Field

When you go there, you can see the sizable cyanide waste from the mines that have built up over the course of about a century. Climbing the dumps, some of which are 30 meters high, gives you a haunting sense of the past. You can get a sight of the once-thriving metropolis that was home to Anglo-Indians, geologists, mine supervisors, and labourers from adjacent regions by looking at the dump machinery and the abandoned gold mine town.

Kolar in Karnataka, a historically rich destination

You might be shocked to learn that Kolar was the first city in the nation to receive electricity. In order to ensure that there would be no issues with gold mining, the British began the production of energy in 1889 by putting in hydropower facilities. This area was developed into a contemporary metropolis for convenience, with the construction of clubhouses, golf courses, and grand highways. Cyanide Gudda, a location in the Kolar Gold Fields of the Kolar district in Karnataka, served as the backdrop for around 50% of the film. The tale and the real mining are claimed to have occurred there.

Even though Kolar Gold Fields is not a popular tourist spot, add this historically rich destination to your list!
