The Avadoota Datta Peetam or Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Ashrama , as it is popularly known, is not your typical ashrama.

Sri Ganapathi... More

I was interested in the Bonsai Gardena and Aviary rather than the temple. We were quite early in the morning and Aviary doesn't open till 9.30. We waited about 15 mins for it to open.... More
