We had one of the wonderful experiences in the recent times! The whole place is abuzz with the Sanatana Dharma and from the entrance to the complete tour, the whole place is so beautifully conceptualized, created and maintained is definitely no small task! Anantaraman Swamiji's ambitious venture has not only brought into this world a thousands of years of history of our ancient past but also has given life to each and every well known scripture and its stories in our puranas and vedas and other works that we go into that era in every part of the museum! The best part is the staff and hospitality that was meted out to us was outstanding and the food which is part of the package is so homely and amazing that we were really overwhelmed! The whole area is stretched out green with coconut and other trees and plans spanning across 25 acres and museum stands tall in middle of the place! A must visit for one and all and experience the whole sensation which cannot be expressed more in the words :-).. I urge each one of you to take time out of your busy schedule and plan a visit to Omthara which is just 70 kms from south bangalore. Do book it in advance a day or two before you plan as the team has to make sure they are ready to welcome you for this wonderful and inspiring tour.. Best wishes to the team Omthara

Do you want to become a child again? Do mythological stories attract you? Welcome to a resort like no other!! Omthara will take your breath away with its exquisite life size sculpting and tabloids depicting the Hindu Epics such as Mahabharata and Ramayana apart from a myriad of stories from the Puranas.

Nestled amidst vast landscaped gardens that depict sculpting of Buddha's enlightenment and a courtyard which reverberate with the Gayatri Jaap in the morning, Omthara is the brainchild of the creater of the world famous Amar Chitra Katha series.

The rooms are well appointed and the food is simple and yummy. Lunch at the beautifully designed terrace overlooking lush green coconut plantation is a must. The staff is hospitable without being conspicuous. If you crave quiet, lazy and comfortable break, look no further.

The other highlights are the light and sound show on the 10 Avataras of Vishnu and the stunning event hall. For the adventurous, there is a granite hillock right behind which offers a good steep trek ending atba Shiv temple atop it.

Just a 1 hr 20 min drive from Bangalore makes Omthara a great day plan or an event venue. Try it once and soak yourself in the beauty of Hindu Mythology.

Hi, i am Dr. Deepa, I went with my friends. To the 6 hrs package. As soon as we reached we were served a tasty breakfast in garden where the peacock was moving around, so it was very nice feel, we were given a good welcome to enter. With a song and aarathi. Later a good info regarding the sculptures. Lunch in a colorfull table and variety of tasty food.The place is superb. No words to express. It was like a palace and we were treated as queens😃.Only the directions are missing from main road, the entrance board must be big.
Hospitality, food, guide, service, overall very good.
The network was good though its very inside, remote place.
The people are very helpfull.

To be improved is the wash basin was leaking, making the floor filled with water.
Overall good experience.

THIS IS ONE OF A KIND PLACE DIFFERENT FROM THE RESORT OR WEEKEND GETAWAY. IT WAS A CULTURAL EVENT WITH VARIOUS PERFORMANCES, FASHION SHOWS, DANCE AND MUSIC.
THE DANCE PERFORMANCE INCLUDED VEERAGASE, SOMA, BHARATHNATYAM.
THE FOOD WAS A TREAT TO THE TASTE BUDS.

Excellent place for family and business outing

Unbelievable lifetime great experience at OmThara. It was a great endeavour to rejuvenate the relationships, make new relationships, celebrate the life, celebrate elderly, surender to the almighty, aimed to do good for all and the world. What else title could have been better than "ನಾವು ನಮ್ಮವರು"

My vocabulary is too poor to explain the feel of content and feel of joy that we and our elderly have enjoyed and taken away.

Thankyou is too small word to Kishan and Brindala for organising such a selfless and amazing celebration. Realized the meaning of ವಸುದೈವಕುಟುಂಬಕಂ

😌

It is not very often that we get to see individuals contributing to a cause and national heritage through their collections as much as a Government or an organisation or can do. We do see one in OmThara Kala Kuteera, which is quite close to Bengaluru city, an exemplary collection of sculptures, paintings, artefacts etc. This place is unique because the collector has also designed the place himself with utmost attention to details, bringing artisans from different parts of the country. The place is sprawling, with plenty of greenery, peacocks making it even more beautiful . A lot to learn through them, one day is not enough.

Nestled close to Basaveshwaranagar Village, over an hours drive from Bengaluru, it’s a must visit place for many reasons! We enjoyed the greenery, peacocks dancing, rich dose of Indian culture, Ramayana & Mahabharat and an excellent sound & light show!
Strongly recommend for a memorable getaway 😊
