Description

Visit an area a stone's throw from modern Bangalore's downtown district, and get transported a whole century back to old ways of life: temples serving breakfast to their devotees, a religious memorial built for a Guru, Sari weavers working with pure silk and jacquard, and old pre-urban architecture and town planning

Go beyond the guidebook on this tour in Bangalore. Meet your guide at 9:00 AM and set off for an informative and enlightening walk learning about the snake temple, the weavers in the area and also get an insight into the old alleyways of the city of Bangalore 

Below is a list of items from which we create our itinerary:   

  • Take a long walk around the stadium to arrive at the legendary snake temple, famous for its Dosas
  • Indulge in the best flavours of South Indian breakfast
  • Take a walk through the area, observing old Hindu architecture, now being replaced by middle class, modern, glass and steel structures
  • Visit weavers of Saris in the area, and get colourful pictures of the beautiful threads in loom
  • End with visiting an old temple and a temple pond (where pilgrims once used to bathe but which is now a dry, empty space)
