Description

On this private 3.5-hour tour, discover Bangalore, which was founded 500 years back by the founder of the city Kempegowda. Experience the culture, customs, and traditions come alive in the narrow alleys of this off the beaten path, where you pass through an ancient church, 380 year old temple, heritage building, historic mosque, an old wrestling house, market places, and a traditional healing place. This is the side of Bangalore you will experience only after tossing away the guide book, and one that you will remember for years to come.

You will begin this tour by meeting at the Entrance of State Bank of India (near Mysore Bank Circle) at your chosen timing and learning the story of Bangalore on the very streets that laid the foundation of the entire city.

Take a walk past an old memorial church where you will listen to the contribution of a missionary towards Karnataka's history. Imagine going back in time 100 years back where you can admire the architecture of an old yet well maintained building while learning how it empowers the youth of today. Seek blessings at an old temple which is more than 380 years old, while learning more about the traditional temple rituals. Visit an old style wrestling house and learn its connection with history and why it is in dying form today. Get a glimpse into the ancient healing medicines and practices used by the 6th generation family, which are popular to current date. Make a wish at a Muslim place of worship where religions merge and listen to the stories and rituals that is still carried forward by the locals at the Pete. You will end the walk at the Cottonpet Circle where children and other people get treated the orthodox way for peace and prosperity.
