Monkey Man of Karnataka

People call him Kothi Rama (ಕೋತಿ ರಾಮ). He climbs the walls of Chitradurga rock fort and mountains like any other monkey. Check this video to believe my words.


There have been lots of documentaries telecasted by T.V channels about Jyoti Rama.  If you have got any links and videos of those documentaries, please do share. Its a joy to watch this guy climbing the rocks and walls. He even trains youngsters to climb rocks and walls. I shall update this blog space as and when I get more info.
