A natural rock, with lot of bee hives. Request for youngsters, not to drink and enter the water body. It's very dangerous to swim here. Do not litter around and keep the place clean.

It's a huge rock with Kaneri river flowing beneath. And has cave formations due to water current. Must visit to feel the grandeur of that mighty Rock
