I would recommend not to plan a visit to this place unless you go for taking boat yo tannivir beach. This place has old watch tower structure on the bank of river.

A nice experience to cross the small lake by ferry and go on the other side towards Tannir Bhavi beach.Nothing great apart from this experience to watch out for.

This place is away from the city and would need a vehicle to visit. However it is worth crossing the river using a ferry and visit Tannirbavi beach and take some best photographs.

Located on the river banks, a small Tipu Sultan's battery! Very scenic place with lot of photo opportunities. Make sure to take a boat ride to access nearby island for fun and a picnic. Place is accessible by bus.
