Situated in Basavanahalli Village, on way to Neelamangala from Peenya, this impressively built multistoried resort surrounded by vast land mass, is easy to locate on Google map. The distance from MG Road, Bangalore could be around 50 km.
Almost 100% of the exhibits here is a spiritually-oriented Hindu's dream-cum-true. The person-in-charge/guide Mr. Padmanabha is pleasant and humorous from the word go and will take you on a tour of the entire building comprising of 4 floors, starting from the exterior which is adorned by beautifully carved statues of Gods and Goddesses s from Hindu and Buddhist scriptures.
Every floor from Level 0 to 4 opens into beautiful paintings, statues, and depictions of Ayodhya, Haridwar, Brindavan, Tirumala and so on.
The facets that fascinated me most:
1. The guide himself - a walking-talking dictionary of Hindu culture and tradition
2. The Dasavatharam light and sound show, simple yet well thought-out, and the profound voice of the speaker.
3. The sumptuous vegetarian lunch at Annapoorna Restaurant (aptly named)
4. The Snake and Slide show that's rib-tickling.
Other facilities include music to which you can groove or just chill, young and energetic employees ready to play the guitar or show a dance move; swimming pool, evening tea/snacks etc.
However, I would give a 4.5* rating because this place is most suitable for a crowd who has deep interests in our mythology. Those who are unaware of this vast Indian heritage might find it a little boring.
Also, there should be some more additional fun for young children so that families can plan a trip.
Suggestion: If the planners could arrange overnight stays, it would be more fun as traveling up and down takes up a huge part of this one-day trip.

To sum it up, our group of seniors and not-so-seniors just loved the trip

Folks, if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of Bengaluru and want to enrich your minds please visit Om Tara. It is a day trip from Bengaluru, easily accessable and is in a very serene, peaceful setting. Built with love and passion by late Mr. G Ananthram it has been taken to another level by his family. Hindu culture, mythology as well as the vedas have been depicted in the form of carvings and paintings. There is a sound and light show which provides a very good understanding of the Hindu culture. They also provide a very healthy vegetarian lunch. Overall a great experience and a day well spent.

Omthara Kala Kuteera cannot be explained but needs to be experienced.This divini serene heritage centre is an epitome of architectural excellence. Very tastefully built, it took them 20 years to bring alive this dream.Attention to detail is magnificent. This place gives you a visual treat on our mythological stories we have all learnt from time immemorial.The manager Mr. Padmanabh's patience and enthusiasm and his effort to ensure that your a great experience is laudable.The food and snacks served there is excellent.You have to visit this place to know what they have to offer. You need a full day to see the place in its entirety.There is an entry charge and the minimum pax is 10 to visit this awesome place.I am looking forward to visit this heavenly place soon.
