Established in the late 1800s as a settlement for the Eurasians and Anglo Indians of Bangalore, Whitefield has evolved from being a quaint residential neighbourhood into Bangalore’s IT hub. Once upon a time, renowned for Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram
called Brindavan, Whitefield today is dotted with modern shopping and tech parks and has grown into a hip chill out hub for all. Home to fancy bakeries, restaurants serving the best of international cuisines to local Kerala dishes, a shopping destination set within a farm amid lots of greenery, heath and wellness resorts to a vibrant night life, there is a lot to discover here. If you are a history buff, Whitefield’s Waverly Inn where former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once lived and one of the oldest houses that still retains the centuries old architecture is worth a visit.
