After hearing a lot about Nrityagram we planned to visit the place. It's in a very secluded place in Hesaraghatta. It's very good for a day's trip (loved the drive as well). I loved watching the students practicing Odissi. Other than that there is nothing much. Food is unavailable inside the place but there is a Taj Kuteeram located just... More

While the ambience is ok it could have been made much more attractive. Apart from a few training sessions, there wasn't anything there. By 12pm they wind up the sessions and nothing much after that. The food in Taj kuteer was fantastic. It is worth the price.

The hessarghatta lake isn't yet beautiful although its beautiful since the monsoons haven't officially started. The landscape is quite vast with greenery but the best time to see a fully blossomed lake would be July-Aug. Its on the way to Nrityagram so doesn't require a deviation as well if you are heading that way. The moment you enter and step... More

Surely a unique experience. Has given India some great talent in Odishi. But it's only questionable how long the set up will be there in the long run. The people are very dedicated and you can see them perform and practice all day. I think out of some 7 forms of dance that was originally planned to be taught only... More

Far from city's hustle and bustle, this place offer you peace of mind and satisfies your love for classical dance. Lot of greenery, beautiful wall arts, classical odissi dancers, and lots more....Good place for photography. You are not allowed to take photos when odissi dancers perform but you can definitely capture it in your eyes as memories for lifetime. Interactions... More

Prior to my visit here, i have had little exposure to dance of any sorts, cultural or modern. This visit has certainly been worth while. It has exposed to me to the art of dancing and how complex and exhausting it is. Without a doubt it has made me appreciate the talents and dedications of the dancers. We were lucky... More

A must visit for those who love Indian classical dance. This center of learning is unique, as it still follows the time tested "gurukul parampara". There is no better way to promote classical dance than opening up the school to public, as once can get a transparent view of what's happening inside this organization. A credit very few organizations can... More
