These are really beautiful gardens, we reached here when the sun was about to set. The garden is pretty big, with good views. Lot of places to eat snacks as well and you go over a bridge to reach the other side of the garden. There is a musical light show as well, and it was amazing. We enjoyed over bit in these lovely gardens. It is built near Krishnarajasagara dam which is built across the river Kaveri, so you can spare time for this dam as well.
