  1. The co-ordinates points to a place called IHMR. Can someone tell the route. I know the meet is over but I just wanted to explore the place. Only thing I can figure out is I have to take that Bassapura road which leads me to electronic city.

  2. Depends on from which side you are going...If its from Jigani Anekal Road, then take the Kuchcha Road on the right where you will see two huge trees. After half km drive across the paddy fields you can reach this place.
