The Awesome Akkayamma Betta, Lake & Temple

Personally one of my most Fav and also the closest hill from hill is the Akkayamma Betta... I should have visited this place at least 50+ times as its 15 mins drive from my home and usually spend my Sunday evenings here quietly sitting and seeing the Planes landing in Airport so that my monday comes very late and I can avoid the white topping torture in the ORR of Bangalore next morning ( Pre Covid days)..

This Place is a magic in monsoons as a beautiful orange flowers bloom on top in a grasslands and shows a pretty scene... Its a very small hill and the car can reach 75% to the hill and rest can be covered in 10 mins walk even senior citizens can manage..One can also park the car at the base and walk the steps to reach the first temple. We have planted 50+ trees here in last 5 years and happy to see most of them grown 6+ feet and its a happy memory.. One can also see the Airport from the peak and flights landing and taking off..

There are 4 temples here and a beautiful Kalyani as well.. This place deserves a 3 hour on a lovely evening. People can cover this place along with a lake near by (Doddajala Lake) and the Chikkajala fort...The Chikkajala fort is at least 300 years old and hosts a hanuman temple and also a Banyan tree which is 200+ years old and has completely grown on first floor of a stone structure and roots never touches ground...The Decathlon is also near by and kids can be taken for some sporting action and shopping... Will suggest to have a coffee tea or snack at the Itihaas restaurant near Decathlon as it has tasty food...
