Hesaraghatta Lake and around has some intersting places for a weekend outing.

Hesaraghatta Lake was conceived to store a three-year' water supply to the city. Unfortunately most of the water has dried up and during summers, the lake is barren. But the good news is that the Lake still attracts birds such as), Brahminy kites, black drangos, bulbuls, kingfishers, magpie robins and common mynas.

The last surviving grasslands near Bangalore are in Hesaraghatta. It is a refreshing world of vast open spaces where you can see for miles. Just drive around over these plains and soak in the concept of open spaces before it is time to go back to claustrophobic Bangalore!

Founded in 1973 by BRP Swamy and supported by legendary Nagendra Rao, The Adarsh Institute is a premier source for training artists in Karnataka for TV and Film industry. The popular courses are on acting, playback singing, direction, cinematography and editing. The Kannada Silver and Small Screen has gained a galaxy of stars and hundreds of technicians from Adarsh Institute.
