Hey guys! so few days back I had a surprise visit to Bannerghatta National Park.Surprise?? yes! It was Janmashtami day and I was wearing a saree after a long time, so I asked hubby to take me to a good location for a photoshoot. Believe me , by good location,I meant I just wanted to go to a nearby lake which is at 5 min drive.But he took us all the way to Bannerghatta and Gosh! I never ever had thoughts of walking into that vast wildlife reserve wearing a saree and high heels.But somehow I successfully managed to click some beautiful pictures.
Although it’s a photo blog, but I would surely like to add something about Bannerghatta National Park for my visitors convenience in case they want to visit this beautiful place.
Bannerghatta National Park, near Bangalore Karnataka, was founded in 1970 and declared as a national park in 1974. In 2002 a portion of the park, became a biological reserve, the Bannerghatta Biological Park. It is a popular tourist destination with a zoo, a pet corner, an animal rescue centre, a butterfly enclosure, an aquarium, a snake house and a safari park. There are ancient temples in the park for worship and it is a destination for trekking and hiking. The 65,127.5 acre (260.51 km2) national park is located about 22 km south of Bangalore in the hills of the Anekal range with an elevation of 1245 – 1634m.
