A residential area with quaint homes, leafy roads, markets and temples, a walk here can take you back in time. Always buzzing with activity, Basavanagudi buzzes even more feverishly before festivals. There are numerous restaurants here, some institutions in themselves. This is a good place to feast on idlis (savory cake), dosas (savory pancakes) and the famous filter kaapi (coffee). « less

Easy access to the Bull Temple, safe and convenient neighborhood with the K.R. Park and more. Shop at Gandhi Bazaar. Not too far from Jayanagar, where you will find the best restaurants and more.

Reminds you of old Bangalore. But nothing much do otherwise. But a nice feeling to get way from the concrete malls.

I have never seen such a huge Nandi 15ft (height) x 20ft (length) built out from a single granite monolith any where in India. This is a must for any Visitor in Bangalore. the location is serene and near by many temples including the famous Doda Ganesh which is also built from a huge monolith..
