The Nrityagram Dance Village is situated in a remote part of Hessarghatta which probably deters many from visiting it. The place itself is quiet and serene. You can watch kids dance classes on Sundays which is quite an enjoyable experience. There is an entry fee of Rs 50 which is quite reasonable and photography is prohibited in all performances which...

We drove on Christmas day to visit Nrityagram located in a remote area near Bangalore only to find out that the school was closed until Jan 4. We had consulted the Nrityagram webn site before but there was no mention of this closure. The roads leading to the location are narrow with poor signs. Not a worthwhile tourist attraction.

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.

Nrityagram is a residential dance school set on the outskirts of Bengaluru city. Its a beautiful gurukul built on the lines of vernacular architecture. Its an hours drive from the city. Do take care of having your own means of transportation as its off the main road and will be a hassle if you don't have the means to get... More

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
