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

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..

I was visiting South India after several years and wanted to experience the real essence of this heavenly place. My dear family took me to this bazaar and I loved the overcrowded, colorful, fresh bazaar with a wide variety of local items and eatables. I bought a few silk saris from the cloth shops for my friends.

I wanted to see this place as I read good reviews about this place. . But all in all it was just another local market.. People say u can find everything in that market but I guess that's only for the locals as they know the place well. .
