Nrityagram is situated very close to Bangalore but yet it is far away from the humdrum of the city life. It is nestled amongst the farms, the last remaining grasslands of Bangalore and lush green trees with hardly any civilization in sight. The drive was an absolute delight taking us through the verdant farms and cattle-blocked roads ;) and yes... More

This place is 30-40 kms away from bangalore. It is not a good idea to go as a group to enjoy holidays. Because it is a dance school , you have to maintain silence. Once you enter Nrithyagram ,you have to take 50 rs pass. You can watch odissi dance teaching class and photos taking is strictly prohibited inside class.... More

I was here a couple of weeks ago with a few friends. I must say this place is a retreat. The calm ambience and the green trails are to die form. It is a perfect weekend getaway. It is advisable to make a call to the place before you visit because they are shut at times. Also if you call... More

One of a kind dance village. Beautiful. Well maintained. Rustic. A photographer's delight. Your are allowed to watch dancer's practicing. Its mesmerizing. Must visit if you are a fan of architecture or of the performing arts.

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
