LALBAGH WALK

Rolling out the red carpet: An unhurried walk in the urban haven of Lalbagh

Bangalore's most popular tourist destination, Lalbagh, is often thought of as a large boring park, which it may seem. Walk with us to discover the treasure that is Lalbagh, as we take you through the sand, stone and waters of Lalbagh, our Tipu Sultan's pleasure paradise!

Commissioned by Hyder Ali and completed by Tipu Sultan, Lalbagh was the ruler's personal garden, a statement of power and extravagance. Around one of Kempe Gowda's towers, Lalbagh has since acquired a large range of horticultural samples, a beautiful glass house and India's first lawn-clock. Today, it is not just a botanical garden but is also one of the few green spaces left in the increasingly polluted 'garden city'.

Join us as we step into pockets of silence and bloom right within the corporate jungle that is Bangalore. Listen to stories from the past, myths associated with the park and personal anecdotes that help understand Lalbagh better.

Mi casa su casa: Visits to Bangalore's century old Bungalows

Since the capture of Bangalore from the unwavering clutches of Tipu Sultan, several British families have made Bangalore their home. The flourishing cantonment north of the beautiful Cubbon Park was almost British in its making: wide roads lined by trees, locally brewed foreign alcohol, the early entry of cars and the Bungalows they were parked in. With wide garden space around the house, built in typical British grandeur, tall roofs to allow air to come in, the now slowly disappearing old Bungalows of the city tell the tales of the needs, preferences and culture of the time.

Soaking in the old world charm of Richards Town, catch a breath of fresh air and some snippets of local history in the verdant Richards Park. Also to see are a few pretty yesteryear villas and local churches in the idyllic settings of aPaulogy, a unique gallery that takes viewers back to Bangalore of the 70s.

MALLESWARAM WALK

In the new: Forest Malleshwara in the middle of the city

The olden day suburb now at the heart of the city, Malleswaram evokes a strong sense of nostalgia and curiosity among Bangaloreans and outsiders alike. A large modern mall and the typically South Indian street shopping side-by-side, Malleswaran presents to you a quintessential slice of the south Indian life, modern and age-old.

Malleswaram was visualised and built as a suburb, where the blue collar middle-class stayed, far enough from the central business district of the day, but close enough to take a short ride by horse carriage, or in rare cases by car. As employees of the British government or the Mysore Raj, or researchers and scientists at the IISc, the early inhabitants of Malleswaran tended to be upper middle class, mostly Brahmins, Bharatanatyam patrons, the influence of which can be seen to this day.

Exploring this authentically South Indian Malleshwaram, this walk take you through delights of south Indian life: in Hindu temples, street shopping for hand-woven flowers and pooja materials, freshly brewed filter coffee and one of Bangalore's best dosas

From Kempe Gowda onwards: a walk in the pete

It is one of Bangalore's oldest settlements, filled with mazes of tiny streets, communities of professionals buzzing with energy, and the typical South Indian life. Walk along, unhurried.

The 'modern' side of modern Bangalore often overrides the glorious heritage of the old city. With the rice-pete, jeweller's-pete, small-pete, large-pete, the criss-cross of narrow lanes, the little shops of local produce, century-old temples tucked away behind posters of Kannada films, the old city breathes a different breath of today's Bangalore.

Take a long walk across the old city. Shop for rare books, cotton and silk clothing, taste some quintessential south Indian food, and peep into some inconspicuous yet century old temples with the Unhurried Pete Walk.
