Brindavan Gardens

Brindavan Gardens and KRS dam are adjacent places to Visit. Need to walk a kilometer on Dam to reach Gardens. The garden will attract for those who are interested in Botany. Plenty of trees, fruits and plants with their botanical names. The Main and Interesting attraction of Brindavan Gardens is its Musical Fountain, it bursts water with synchronization of Music. I believe it will be started around 6PM in the Evening, where you can enjoy the Musical fountain with lights as easily. It’s truly a treat to watch with Music. I see people assemble around 5 PM for this event. You get to see this spot on many movies, especially on the song sequences.
