While returning back to Mysore from Nanjangud, we visited this holy place situated on main road. The main deity of temple is Lord Balaji. On left side of temple, there is a huge statue of Hanumanaji. One more surprising thing was that we have seen CAMEL as a vehicle of HANUMANJI. The temple is precious, neat and clean. Recommended to... More

The entry to the Ashrama is complimentary. One can see unbelievable species of birds without paying any fee, but any photos with the birds (select few birds) is charged. IN face a big highlight is a photo opportunity with huge macaws from South America. The other one is with smaller birds - you basically take a small tray of fruits... More

A wonderful parrot center, a very well maintained bonsai garden, peaceful temple, open grounds to play for kids and many tamarind trees...some of the highlights of this wonderful place! Kids are recommended to take their outdoor playing stuff, parents should take some food and enjoy eating in the shade of the trees....oh yes no photography allowed inside the parrot arena... More

A nice 3-4 hour activity place. While the Datta, Anjaneya (huge statue) and Sri Srinivasa temples attract devotees in large numbers, the Bird Park has an amazing collection too (Closes at 5 pm). The Musuem contains artefacts presented to Guruji during his numerous visits abroad/visiting dignitaries. One needs patience, energy and time to appreciate it. Plenty of vehicle parking space....

Very well maintained aviary . Lots and lots of birds and kakatoos. These birds which are from all over the world and endangered can be seen here .I wonder who imported these endangered species in India. The entry is free to the aviary but very rudely staffed.

Journeying to this shrine takes time, but the real hit is to visit the bonsai (miniature garden) and the bird sanctuary. One must note that the cleanliness is good and nature lovers would enjoy this location.
