Malleswaram, that bastion of Tamilians in Bangalore, is another locale that is a whole world away from India’s silicon city. Watch maamis in their kanjeevarams haggle in the market, visit a temple or two, eat local food and browse through small shops. The Kaadu Malleswara Temple and Sankey Tank are oases of calm amid the bustle. A new arrival on the scene is the incongruous Mantri Mall, much reviled for being the harbinger of modernization in Malleswaram.

It's one of the old Bangalore place filled with temples & very good restaurants like Raghavendra stores, Venus stores, Halli Mane & many good temples & of course 8th cross for shopping. Now, Mantri Mall has added more value to this place.

Malleshwaram is a buzzing place in Bengaluru which is lively in the evenings. The main temple is pretty good and there are many good places to shop for clothes and accessories. If you are in Bengaluru, Malleshwaram should be on your list.

Malleswaram was the best place to spend my childhood. The place is safe and has access to everything. I enjoy even to this window shopping at 8th cross. The small and old eateries are the best place for authentic bangalore/Mysore kind of South Indian food. CTR, Veena Stores, Asha Sweets, Janatha Hotel just to mention a few. This place has... More

Malleswaram is one of the oldest area of Bangalore. Rather would say its the real bangalore giving old world charm and feel of namma bengaluru housing some old buildings, shops and one of the best flower market.

I stayed in Malleswaram for 1 year. For me, this was the best place in Bangalore, with complete greenery all around. very close to both Yeshwantpur (20-30 Min) and Bangalore central (20-30 min) railway stations. The market place was awesome specially in the evening wen you have roasted corns, flowers all along the streets with crowded market place.
