This place is currently under renovation and may take some time to complete. The idols have been shifted to a temporary worship area where the devotees can go for Darshan.
Very Prestine place and full of History. The Air smells like Eucalyptus and it is very cold. Good place to unwind and retreat from the busy world.
Thtz better to ride a bike on dat place during 7 best feeling ever Good view is available Photoshoot best place And don't stop d vechiles during ride in d middle of forest road Because of forest animals By morning 6 and all we can see deer rabbit Also elephant some times
The way to hill top is scenic with well maintained roads, it is a protected forest reserve hence you will be able to spot few wild animals. In the top you will find sri biligiri ranganathaswamy temple and b r hill view point. Nice place to visit on weekend and short ride for bike enthusiastic's from Bangalore.
Great place to visit, especially the climate totally different once you enter the forest area. Great for passing a day away from home.
