Basavangudi is one of the few areas in Bangalore that have retained its old-world charm. 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).

Visit Gandhi Bazaar to get the bazaar feel that is getting lost with the mushrooming of malls in Bangalore. There are all kinds of shops / establishments right from sweet meat shop to vegetable/fruit vendors to electronic goods and cloth merchants. Relive your younger days if you grew up in small town or even big metros.

Easily accessible from many areas, Gandhi Bazaar is crowded throughout the day, and if you're ready to brave the crowds, you will... More
