Continuing our series of walks through Kempe Gowda's Pettah area, we now offer you our fourth walk in this part of Bengaluru. On this edition of our walk, we take you to the famous temple associated with the Karaga rituals as well tell you more about the famous Devanga community who weave silk sarees on the power-looms in Cubbonpet. On the way we take you to a 'jhatka' stand to transport you into a time when there were no vehicles in our town. If time permits, we will also be visiting a few other smaller temples too. In between the bytes of history, we also catch up on some bites of Damrot & other sweetmeats and savories from a legendary stall in this locality. Rest assured this is not a food-walk!
The grand finale is shopping for greens in Cubbonpet in a market which has been earmarked by BBMP for modernization.
So if you are free this weekend, put on your walking shoes and let us take you on a walk through the Pettah, like no one else does.
Do pass the word to your friends too. Cost 550/- per head including light snacks & beverages.
"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
