We had the opportunity to visit Omthara Kala Kuteera recently, thanks to a very dear friend who introduced us to this amazing place, in the outskirts of Bangalore – off Mangalore road. We reached Omthara Kala Kuteera in the morning 9:00 AM and spent the whole day in this wonderful palatial building and serene, lush green surrounding. As soon as we reached, we were welcomed with a home cooked, tasty, sattvic breakfast followed by a guided tour of the entire premises, starting from the temple on the outside, to the entrance and every corner of each floor - basement, ground and upper 2 floors and the meditation hall on the terrace. We were amazed with meticulously carved out sculptures on one stone (monolith), artwork, paintings with the precise eyes for details - simply amazing. I am a big fan of Amar Chitra Katha since my childhood and the memories of Amar Chitra Katha came alive during the tour. It turns out that Pandit Shri G. K. Ananthram whose dream/imagination took the shape of this wonderful place, was also the founder of Amar Chitra Katha (in Kannada and later it was translated in English and also in Hindi). Afternoon around 2:00 we had delicious lunch and then we continued to the guided tour of artwork, wooden, and stone sculptures, wall paintings, and the mesmerizing story of ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu in a theatre. Overall it was very relaxing, peaceful, enjoying day trip. Highly recommended for a family getaway. It is also an ideal place for a family or friends reunion.

Omthara kalakuteera is a Total paisa vasool..... we were welcomed by mr.srinivas with a hot yummy breakfast and the rest of the trip was royal. It's simply beautiful. The place itself is divine. You must sit there and listen to the sound of silence. Srinath was with us throughout the day as our guide .a very nice person. I definitely recommend this place.

The place depicts our old folk stories, religious stories, cultures, traditions etc.

Definitely anyone will enjoy and relax.

We being from traditional Hindu families have been exposed to all of these from early childhood. It wasn’t very compelling to us because of that.

If you are visiting Hasan or mangalore from Bangalore, you may plan to stop over for an hour or two, enjoy and move on. 1hr is usually enough and you can extend it if you really need.

Guides aren’t required unless you don’t know anything about Hindu mythology and Indian culture.

Post pandemic the place is still being revived.

Happened to chance upon about Omthaara Kala Kuteera in facebook. Such a serene,green, nearby knowledge power house of our mythology!!!!! Just can't believe it is the brain child of one man Shri Anatharam, an editor with IBH and creator of Amar Chitra Katha's initial editions. The ACK just unfolded before us. The legacy being carried over truly by his sons-non -commercial,homely ,educative . Truly the upholders of our rich heritage,culture,tradition. We two and 2 elders (83 & 76 years)visited Omthara on 6th June,hassle free booking,discount,warm welcome with traditional arathi,welcome drink,smiling and knowledgeable guide srinivas,marvellous sculptures, carvings, murals, statues,paintings,meditation room,sound and light effects,green ambience around with a hillock backdrop,beautiful peacock company,whole mythology unearthed in front of our eyes-Ramayan,Mahabharata, Bhagavata, Srinivas kalyana,Buddha's life, Dasavatharam, Chidambaram, Chardham, and many more mythological themes. Even the elders could climb up to 3 floors as the steps are of very small height. otherwise they have a doli too. Plus delicious snacks and coffee.
Don't miss,just book and visit with your young children introducing them to our great culture. Even they have a hall which looks like Devendra's Amravati,with Samudra Manthana back drop,can be used for marriages too.
They have a pyramid shaped meditation room too and all traditional sports activities too,lit if scope for taking great pics😁
We all came back fully refreshed.
Only glitch,don't listen to Google while heading back,
just come back via NH75

Once in a life time experience. Vibrant depiction of mythology and art in various forms of sculptures, monuments, paintings. Amazing story telling about various kathas in Hindu mythology. Closest to nature, various indoor and outdoor games which will take us back to childhood. It's truly a temple, cultural museum, resort, nature park and many things in one tranquil place. Mr Krishna, Mr Srinivasa and their team gave us a memorable hospitality which truly upholds our culture. To finally top it up, a hearty meal and snacks when needed - more than satisfying. Must visit for all to know, learn, get enlightened about our rich Heritage. Totally worth it.

We had an awesome experience right from entry at 10 am till we left. The ambiance and environment is truly an experience that can't be described in a few words.
My honest suggestion for all is to visit the heritage site!

We stayed overnight at this resort. Its a hidden gem just an hour drive from Bangalore. Each piece of art is so unique and the entire idea of narrating stories and our culture through art is commendable. The entire place is clean and well maintained. The food spread is good and staff are very hospitable. Definitely a must visit place to spend a weekend in a meaningful way with family.

Really a heaven on earth. We, three families went on recent holidays. Received warm welcome and they explained about various packages. It has 6 floors to cover. Each floor has some theme, Lord Krishna's stories, Lord Siva's stories, Lord Budda's stories etc. Mr. Srinivas, a guide from their side explained us in detailed manner. They got a great and rare collection of Tanjore and kalankari arts. Light show on Dasavathara is worth watching. 108 dancing postures of Lord Nataraja (Lord Siva) are superb. Inhouse canteen, resting places, kids play area, very royal function hall are highlights of this place. We are fortunate to meet founders' son and his wife. They are so sweet and gave us great hospitality. I strongly recommend this place.

Definetly a hidden jewel. I was mesmerized with the intricate work done on the walls. Amazing scenic beauty, Chirping of birds and peaceful environment. Show Stopper of this place is Pictorial representation of Ramayana on the wall. Each and every point of this place has some story.
They also have suites to stay. We loved the meal. It's fresh, home cooked and was very light on stomach.
If you want to know more then do visit this place and experience yourself. You can find this place easily on Google Maps.
