A perfect road trip to remember we started as per our schedule all super excited. The early morning mist beginning to clear, early dawn bright rays welcoming us. We hit the Bellary road leading to the new international airport and occasionally checking the sign boards leading to Nandi hills. We soon hit the road leading to Nandi hills a left turn welcoming you with cyclists, riders and travelers on a road trip.
It was a cool pleasant day following the vast plain lands, green vineyards, small petty shops and bike riders with their rider's attire speeding in fast you happen to have a glance at the bike and they are off from your sight. Finally we reached the T junction took a right turn which leads to Nandi village(Nandi grama) is about 6km. Byways with slight curves,occasional humps and now you are completely away from usual crowd, traffic you feel as though you are in a remote place. Finally we reached our destination.

Accessed via a small doorway which leads to the wide spacious outer courtyard complex with lush green lawns is a treat to the eyes. A very peaceful place having historical significance is truly an architectural marvel built at the backdrop of the majestic Nandi hills.
