• Feel enlightened as you soak in the divinity:

Visit the Amaranarayana Temple to receive spiritual guidance and vibes and to see the magnificent Tashk-e-Jannat, a palace with exquisitely carved pillars and painted walls. There are several well-known temples and shrines in Nandi Hills, including the Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple, which is devoted to Lord Shiva and his companions Parvati and Nandi.

Because it is one of the older temples in the region, this one is also a wonder of architecture and a popular destination for pilgrims.

• Admire art at the palaces and ruins:

Many reminders of the famous ruler Tipu Sultan's life and legacy in the area because he once used it as a summer retreat. The residence was known as Tashk-e-Jannat, and it still draws tourists thanks to its painted walls, elaborate archways, tall pillars, and intricately carved ceilings.

• Amrit Sarovar will help soak in natural scenery:

Because of its stunning natural and artificial surroundings, a trip to the Amrita Sarovar is a must for anyone visiting Nandi Hills. It is a perennial spring enclosed by arches and stair-like structures on all four sides. Since the beginning of time, the inhabitants of Nandi Hills have relied on the Amrita Sarovar, also known as the Lake of Nectar, as a source of fresh water.

• Tipu's Drop is one of the best vantage points to take in the sparkling sunrises and sunsets:

You're sure to get goosebumps after visiting Tipu's Drop. At 600 meters above sea level, it is a steep rock. The most amazing thing about this cliff, aside from the view and the climb, is that Tipu Sultan used it to punish his prisoners by tossing them off the peak.

Even though the area is now securely surrounded by fences and barricades, it is still a fascinating attraction.

• Visit the cave nearby to find peace away from the busy world and get a chance to be among the clouds at the 'envy of the heavens.':

You'll find an old cave on the side of a steep hill in the Nandi Hills.

The cave has historical value because it is thought that renowned priest Ramkrishna Paramhamsa used it for meditation while in the Nandi Hills.

Not only is it a fantastic location for sightseeing, but it's also a great place to unwind, unwind, and take a step back to appreciate the natural tranquility of the area.
