"This place is next to a temple and you can enjoy sunrise or sunset. Behind this small hill, Bannerghatta park boundary start. When you are going to Bannerghatta national park take right run 2 km before that. You will get really good view in all four direction. Its very peaceful place to hangout with your friends."

"Bannerghatta National park use to be the only attraction for Bangaloreans a decade ago. However, with lot of other activities pitching in and degraded service at Bannerghatta National Park, this place seriously needs some good maintenance. The animals I doubt if they feed them properly. The zoo as such is not neat these days. The forest safari is one of the good attractions. Remember to carry your food parceled from home as there are no much options nearby for good food. Infact there are only couple of restaurants which don't have a quality food."

"Bannerghatta National Park is not too far from Bangalore City Centre and the distance can be travelled without much hassle on a Sunday morning. Lot of wild animals can be seen in the park created to make their habitats as natural as possible. The caged vans go to different sections where each section of the park accommodates different types of animals. Both adults and children enjoy a lot!"
