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

Bull temple is a very peaceful place. Bangalore trip is incomplete without a visit to Vidyarthi Bhavan for Masala Dosa!!

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. .

Its beautiful place for all vegiterian people. Market Gandhi Bazar is real best place to shop. Situated in center of city. Bull temple is walkinn distance so you can go to pray. Many many food restorants are here so you can spend a good evening over here to shop and eat. There is one juice shop who offer best juices... More

This one is an unique place in Bangalore. You have great temples, like bull temple, Gavi Gandadareshware Temple (cave temple), Rama-Anjaneya temple etc.. Apart from this you have nice places to roam around, you have lalbagh, you have DVG road, you have McDs, Pizzahuts etc... in one word, this place is a true mixture of western with traditional Indianness...
