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).

I visited this place on my way. Smell of flowers make you to spend some time. Pooja items are available over here. One of the oldest place in the city,many many people visit this place. Many shops are around and you will get good stuff. Bull temple and Gandhi bazaar are recommended to visit.

Typical South Indian market but the locale, the people and the food make it unique. The smell of the flowers, the excellent crisp Dosas at Vidyarthi Bhavan and the variety of apparel shops on discount to shop from at the highlights for me.

Wonderful place with lot of Buzz around. Gandhi Bazaar is famous for variious things and few among them are Masala Dose of Vidyarthi Bhavan, Flower and Pooja items for your festival and religious functions. And amount off people visitng this place through the day showws the kinnd of energy this wonderful city has.

This would be a evening visit to enjoy the people, things, etc. Dont forget to have authentic south indian food(esp dosa) at Vidyanrthi Bhavan., You may have to wait, but believe me - It is different from the dosas you might have had else where.

Basavanagudi is a must-visit place for any one looking to experience Bangalore first-hand and original. Some of the most famous local-food joints are located here - Vidyarthi Bhawan, Brahmin's, Kamat. Must Visit - Bugle Rock, Gandhi Bazar, DVG Road Try to avoid taking own vehicles as parking might be tough at times.

Gandhi Bazaar visit is a must if you want to feel the old world Bangalore. Street aligned with all kinds of flower & fruits vendors. The only problem is parking. Be ready to park either near Ramakrishna Mission or near the flyover & then walk all the way. A tad crowded but the Dosas at Vidryarthi Bhavan will make the... More

Yes, if you want to resonate to one significant aspect of Bangalore's life you must stroll through Basavangudi and make a visit to the Bull Temple.. But remember, Basavangudi is only one face of the city.. there are many other...

Basvangudi, Gandhi Bazaar is one of the oldest markets in Bangalore and it still retains some of its old world charm. One can shop literally anything here right from vegetables, fruits, spices and clothes. It is one of the best places to buy fresh flowers in bulk required for religious functions.
