The cave temple dedicated to Lord Gangadhareshwara, The plase also known as gowtham kshetra & bharadwaja kshetra, wherein the sage Gowtham and bharadwaja used to worship Lord gangadhara here.
The Kempabudhi lake built by Kempegowda - I arounds 1540's, which is named after his daughter in law...
The watch tower built by Kempegowda -II. who was a visionary, who had a fore thought to restrict the exorbitant growth of the city without proper development of basic amenities.... to ensure he has built four border watch towers to Bangalore....
