Brindavan Gardens, lying at the foot of the Krishna Raja Sagar dam, is amongst the most beautiful formal gardens in the country. Set in descending layers, the gardens are a symphony of manicured lawns, brilliant flower-beds and exquisite topiary with water flowing through the centre. The far end, separated by a small lake, features a variety of coloured fountains. The whole garden turns into a virtual fairyland at dusk as lights come on and the fountains dance to the music.
Karnataka Hotels, KRS (Entry from Royal Orchid) overlooks the gardens and provides an ideal opportunity to experience its charm at different times of the day. Of the 20 rooms available at the hotel, 5 are air-conditioned double bed rooms and 15 standard double bed rooms. A restaurant and the attached beer parlour enable guests to appreciate the beauty of the landscape over a leisurely meal.
