Route: take the Bangalore-Pune highway (National Highway # 4; also known as Tumkur Road) At Dasarahalli (after you pass Yeshwantpur and Peenya), you will see the ECIE factory on the left.Across the road on the right, is a large black glass-covered building. Immediately after these, there is a right turn to Hessaraghatta. On the Hessaraghatta road, follow signs to Nrityagram it is 35 kms from Bangalore and 5 kms from Hessaraghatta.

By the time I wake up everybody of my tribe (bikenomads) had left the town for hogenakkal falls. So I started towards tumkur road for a short breakfast ride. What caught my eye was the sign board of nrityagram.Which is a dance gurukul (based on Guru-shishya parampara) for various Indian classical dances, consisting of seven gurukuls for the seven classical dance styles established by Protima Gauri. The route is split between quiet roads through fields of maize, passing cattle and mud houses & over gently rolling country roads. Saw odissi dance for 30 min was bowled over. As it was 2 pm & time for outsider to leave I went to taj kuteeram for a sumptuous buffet lunch. As the time came for me to leave this idyllic village of dance with the words of Protima Gauri echoing “I am just a dreamer. I come and I go.”
