The peak point of Bangalore is surprisingly among the lesser known places in the city. A cool breeze touches you softly as you reach Omkar Hills to see the what is claimed to be the world's second biggest clock tower. Situated in the south of Bangalore, Omkar Hills is both a tourist spot and a multi-religious forum amid enthralling forest environs. At each hour, the clock, made by HMT, makes a unique loud sound of conch followed by the "Omkar" sound five times and rings the bell that many times, matching the hour it indicates.
The recently built Dwadasha Jyotirlinga Temple attracts thousands during the festival of Mahashivaratri. The banyan tree atop the hillock, appears like an umbrella. There is a pavilion under the banyan tree, situated on the highest elevated hillock from where many parts of Bangalore are visible.
