“Great nature”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Best place to visit wen come to Mysore. It's 70 Kms from Mysore. Have to visit this place in the morning means have to leave early in the morning or at least by 8 am so that we can reach there by 2 hrs. A junction is there where they will check the bags and any plastic items. At the time wen u reach the place it will like heaven on earth. All the surrounding will be covered by fog and mist. Beautiful place to visit. A temple is there on top of the hill.
There will be a bore well near the entrance of the temple which the water will be freezing chill any time through out the year.
And the unique thing of the temple is always a drop of water will be spilling on the god every sec through out the whole year so not even a single day the drop has stopped. Cool place to go wit family and friends.
There is a parking fees which varies on vehicles from 5 to 20 rs.

“The place is good but why pay Rs 50/- to forest department for zero maintenance?”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The place is scenic and beautiful, worth visiting once. You can only go to the temple and watch the sceneic view from there and that's it, no provision for even a short trek and understandably so because, it has high wild elephants concentration.
At the foot of this hill, the forest department people charge Rs 50 per vehicle and I can't figure why because the road to the top is as bad as it was 3 years back when I went free of charge and infact it has gotten worse.

“Surprisingly good!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

The location is too good which is covered by clouds due to it's altitude. Temple is neat, clean & beautiful. It was chilled & raining when we visited. It's just a temple & no other facilities like hotels, restaurants nearby.
