Interesting Bull Temple Area Walk
Dec 2019 • Solo
Mr. Mansoor Ali from Bangalore by Foot is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide who loves his city and knows a lot about Bangalore. Highly recommended tour during which you get to see really interesting places you could not find on your own.

A Walk back in Time, an experience of erstwhile Bangalore City
Nov 2018 • Family
Our Family (Wife, Parents and I) had an opportunity to participate in a Heritage Walk with Bengaluru by Foot (Mr.Mansoor).

The walk started with an interesting introduction about the history of Bengaluru City that featured Kempegowda Maharaj, British Era and more.

We had the pleasure of visiting a Heritage Home in Basavangudi and also interacted with the family.

We developed a lot of admiration for the family values of Mr. M.R. Narendra, after interacting with him. We were amazed by the wisdom and hard-work that had been put in building and maintaining this home. Mr.Mansoor did a wonderful job in explaining us all this in Hindi Language 

We also visited a very popular temple and a park in Basavanagudi. We were mesmerized by the stories associated with the temple and the walk in the park was very memorable.

The day ended with sumptuous dosas at the very popular Vidhyarathi Bhavan. We also tried few chat items at Asha Sweets (though this was not part of the walk)

Mr.Mansoor is very knowledgeable and ensured that this was a memorable experience for all of us.

Mansoor is the best tour guide. I took a tour with him last year which was also amazing. This tour takes you through places you could not experience by car. I greatly enjoyed all the sights along the walk. We also enjoyed the world’s best Dosa breakfast!

An insider's introduction to Basvangudi!
Apr 2018 • Business
After breakfast in a place that I read about in Janaki Nair's book on the history of Bangalore metropolis to a short cut and walk through the bat sprinked park and watch tower we made our way to the Basvangudi (Nandi temple) and to other equally fascinating and serene temples of many gods, stopping by trees with serpent stones. The walk included folklore surrounding the festivals of groundnuts and makar sakranti, and involved visiting weathering homes. The layers of past that included Kempe Gowda as well as more recent types of flour mills of stone and machinery and a washing ghat of a traditional community served as a broad and captivating introduction to this area of Bangalore. Easy to remove footwear and small change would be perfect accessories for this walk due to the many temples involved.
It was a happy walk with our guide who comes from Basvangudi and has long standing relations with the local people and a through research backing up his guided walks. He is also an architect and so it was all the more interesting to know the dates of different buildings and types of construction materials used in the area. I found the walk very useful for getting to this region, a portion of which I plan to include in my research on the history of Bangalore. I would highly recommend this walk!
