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).

It is one of the old bangalore wherein you can get fresh vegetables, fruits etc all sold by street vendors. Rates are competitive but nothing great to include it in your 'places of visit'.

You will get almost anything that you want for pooja items. I usually go my shopping to this place during pooja times such as diwali, holi, kaali puja.
