Sit by the river under one of the trees and clear your mind. A good place to hangout if you love peace or for quiet deep discussions with friends. Enjoy the sight of the river, the sun set wind and the calm beautiful surroundings.

It's more of an outpost made by Tipu Sultan to guard the entry into the river. Take a photograph and then take the ferry to Tannirbavi beach.

This place is majorly used for taking ferry to go opposite side of back waters to tennirbavi Beach to reach the beach side. Ferry is available at ₹5 per person per ride. You can take good pics over here.

It's just a watch tower and view of the backwater. The place doesn't have any good labelling or description about its history. The only reason why anybody might come here is to board the ferry to go to the Tannir Bhavi beach
