How To Reach R. K. Mission?

  2. Cross the Bannerghatta National Park – the road curves to the left at that place near the Bannerghatta Police Station.
  3. Proceed further towards Jigani Industrial township. Halfway, on the right handside you will see the Ramakrishna Mission, Shivanahalli hoarding. (You will also notice a Swamy Ayyappa temple hoarding).
  4. Take a right turn there and drive for about 10 kms. Do not take any side roads (rare and few) that you will come along.
