  • Whether Nandhi Hills open now for visitors?
  • A huge and beautiful Ganesha who seems to be housed in a very small temple. Hardly able to get a glimpse of the full diety. The two nice ladies who take care of your footwear accept payments through Paytm where you just need to scan the QR code displayed.
