Bored of visiting same old gardens that have nothing besides greenery? What if we say that there is a garden that shows glimpses of our glorious past through intricate sculptures.
Located in the Shikaripura taluka of Shivamogga district, Anjanapura garden boasts of numerous life-like structures that might even put Madame Tussauds like wax museums to shame.
Dedicated to our braveheart revolutionaries of the Esuru freedom struggle who played a crucial role in attaining freedom from the Britishers, this garden is nothing less than taking a time travel.
As one walks inside the garden, the entrance depicts scenes of hanging of five national heroes. Visitors can also see these intricate structures come alive as they are holding flags, going to protests and ploughing fields.
According to the reports, Esuru village in Bengaluru was one of the villages in the country that showed immense courage during the freedom struggle after Mahatma Gandhi launched the Quit India Movement in 1942.
In fact, it was apparently the first village to declare itself independent in the country.
Spread across 6.34 acres of land, the garden has become an ideal picnic spot for many. Besides offering a peek into the pre-independence era, this garden is filled with well-manicured lawns, walkways and pretty fountains.
