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.

Malleshwaram is one of the oldest localities in Bangalore. Now it is a busy market place. Mantri Mall is in the begining of Sampige road the main market street. There are many temples in the area. Parking is a big problem here.

Malleshwaram gives a good feel of the old Bangalore. Still one of the best market to shop. You have eveything from local market stuff, food ingredients to posh shops for silk sarees to grand jewelries. There are a few old temples, maths from those who want to visit them. Nearby is also sankey tank and a small park nearby. Orion... More

this area is always known for it's independent bungalows, calm residential areas which now has given rise to market place. The 16th cross is known for shopping for reasonable price. Being a Brahmin community area one can source everything required for pooja or carved wooden Mantapa, sandal wood garlands fresh flowers and very good fruits.

Everything is available in this part of the city. From the famous nandi temple to the huge orion mall, anything is available. Also, there is some fine dining at that place as well as snacks and sweets along with fast foods so that no one gets disappointed. it would be amazing to spend an evening in malleswaram
