Owner description: 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.

The area where all classes of people live and Malleswaram has easy access to all other parts of the city. Even Malleswaram can be named "the heart of Bangalore City". The roads are really crowded and rather overcrowded during festive seasons.

The young girls working the front desk can't answer half of your questions about the island. Also, you're not allowed to bring friends over into your room. Absolutely ridiculous rules and if you question them they will tell you to "feel free to check out".

Old world charm at it's best, great food at every corner, the hustle and bustle of a busy local market, flowers, fruits, vegetables, spices, all beckoning to be bought, what an experience for the senses! Check out restaurants that are more like institutions, having been around for so many years - Sri Sagar (CTR), Veena Stores, Halli Mane, Raghavendra Stores,... More

Malleshwaram is the best place in Bangalore for a Bangalorean. It has everything in it.. schools, colleges, temples, malls, market, lots of trees and now even a metro. What else can you ask for? It is a small city in itself in Bangalore. This is one of the very few places in Bangalore that has maintained its originality. Mantri mall... More

one of the best places to live in bangalore, with temples, houses all across. plenty of street shops, 8th cross in sampige road is packed in the evenings, grew up here in childhood, the place has undergone a major transformation, but still retained the charm
