Thumulagunta Park 2014 
This is a large area, part of which is labelled a lake on the map. It is between the main part of Thumulagunta and the bypass to the South. At this time of year it is dry and used for cricket etc. It is surrounded on the North and East by a raised walk-way decorated with sculptures and beautiful Bourgainvilleas.
At the Thumulagunta end is a huge 'statue' of Hanuman with depictions of his exploits and a place to view the park and to meditate at the top.
This was a favourite place for the gang to suggest for us to go and so these pictures are taken from a number of visits. The park is a great place to go in the evening with its setting sun and cool(ish) breeze.
