This photo is so cool! I have been blessed to have been able to visit Karnataka a few times. I met such wonderful people, and they took me to amazing cultural sites such as ancient temples in Halebeedu and Belur, plus Nandi Hills & Bangalore Palace. But unfortunately I did not get to experience any wildlife. So thanks for showing me what I missed.
