  • This place is very much into the deep of jungle, so there are very much varieties of birds. Crowded little bit, as it was a weekend I visited here. Varieties of birds and butterflies. Very large area. Walkway in to the lake and surrounding was beautiful. There is very good parking space here. To enter you have to take ticket, 25Rs per person and same for the parking charge. Extra amount needs to be paid for camera, that's is 100 rupees. Overall a nice place. Its clean and neat.
  • Awesome place to spend quality time in nature.. very near to Hubli yet provides a serene palace to relax Entire place is well maintained. Best time to visit is early morning or late evening, however If guests stop talking loudly and not disturb the sanctity we might hear the actual birds
