Bundle of multiple things

This place has many things under one roof and I will try to give a brief idea about all. These are the places within same building :1. Karyasiddhi Anjaneya Temple. 2. Datta Venkateshwata Swamy Temple. 3. Shukavana4. Bonsai Garden5. Museum. Shukavana: This is a rehabilitation centre for birds. It houses a large variety of birds. All the birds and very healthy and active. Mobiles have to be switched off before entering the place. The speciality of this place is you can get ur photo clicked with birds. (Parrots, Sun Conures & Macaws) Cost is as follows: Parrots and Sun Conures - 100 for photo print and 10/- per person. Macaw - 200/- per bird. U will get the prints at the exit based on your selection. Bonsai Garden: As the name suggests it houses a large variety of bonsai trees and a fish pond. Takes just 15 mins to have a look. Takes totally 1-2 hours to cover all 5 places. Totally worth a visit.
