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.

“True wanderers hub for food and shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I do visit Malleshwaram atleast twice in a month, due to the easy availability of humongous Veg food options available.

But I must say, it is a very crowded place to travel on a weekend and the amount of time on road is too much. The value for money proposition, when it comes to foodies bring people to Malleshwaram.
As I am a very fond pani puri fan, I wander whole of bangalore for Pani Puri adda's and found amazing ones in Malleshwaram.
Mantri Mall to welcome you to Malleshwaram, Adigas to feed you, Various brands outide Mantri Mall to attract you open handed to shop and amazing restaurants to qwench your hunger for food.

* Dont be capped by just these. The speciality of place named after the famous ->Malleshwara temple is a must see.
* Malleshwaram market is a bit inside, but do search and go inside to experience the freshness in every vegetable, fruits or flowers you want to purchase.
* Famous CET cell is in 18th cross of Malleshwaram, (famous among all engg. and medical students all over karnataka).
* Further more, you'll find Ramamandira, which is one more amazing destination. All classical music lovers must visit during days like RamaNavami, Ganesha festival or Hanumajjayanti as there are amazing artist performing in this place.
* Further you have famous Sampige road and further IISC.

So all in all, you'll not be able to meander complete Malleshwaram in one evening :)

“True Heart of Namma Bengaluru”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

This being one of the oldest localities in Bangalore has hung on to the traditional side of old Bangalore. That doesn't mean it inhibits modernity or progress.
To witness the true spirit of namma Bengaluru, just take a day of half off to stroll through the streets, markets, malls, restaurants, educational institutions, landmarks, residential and commercial blocks to witness and soak in the essence and spirit of namma Bengaluru and its inhabitants.
You will fall in love with this part of namma Bengaluru regardless of your status, religion, lifestyle, family background, cultural preference, ethnicity or outlook on life :)
A must visit if in Bangalore. At the very least to witness the true harmony of traditions and progress, not to mention the peaceful acceptance and co-existence of both the modern and simple people of namma Bengaluru if not for anything more ;)

Malleswaram is largely the old world shopping area which has articles of all varieties and shopping possibilities for anyone who is more patient with the walk, the crowds milling around in all directions (which is not such a change from the malls these days), cars bikes and bicycles moving all around and honking which in a way brings a sense of adventure too :-). The charm of this is far greater than being in a glitzy mall. Each street has its own variety of stores selling more things than we care to imagine and price ranges to suit any budget.. Just to make things balanced, Malleswaram also offers the ever crowded, noisy and difficult to get to mall too. With eateries which are very old and specialities which bring in people from far, this is a complete shopping area.
