A view from above...the Welikande Estate has been developed over 12 acres of greenery, with views that are worth pure gold.

When you walk the Nature Walk, a pathway we created to discover all the spices and flowers that grow on the land, you will end up at the Dhyāna  Shala, from where the sunsets are letting you go into meditation or a relaxing yoga Nidra.
