    Peaceful place for a small outing

    The place is around 25-30 km from Bangalore and is a very peaceful place surrounded by a 400 year old banyan tree. There a many monkeys fighting, playing and eating which is really entertainment for visitors. There is a small temple between the park. The entry of the park is free and it is maintained very well. Be careful of monkeys and don't take snacks inside the park.
