Visit Bangalore’s KR Market

One of the city’s oldest, the bustling KR Market is made up of countless stalls and street vendors, hawking everything from strings of jasmine to dumbbells. The flower market is touted to be one of Asia's largest, so wake up early for this one and enjoy all the colours and scents (a multi sensory immersive experience).

Eat All That You Can At VV Puram

VV Puram AKA Thindi Beedi in Basavanagudi is translated literally to “Food Street”, get food incorporating all elements. Be it ice wafers, fire paan, or pani puri -- they’re all there! From hot greasy dosas, to crunchy Congress peanuts, you’ll be delighted. Just remember that the street only comes alive post 7 and you can eat to your heart's content.

    Gawk At The Beautiful Bangalore Palace

    Built over a century ago in the Tudor-style of architecture that’s reminiscent of French and English castles, the Bangalore Palace designed by Rev J Garrett, and then bought by the then Maharaja of Mysore Chamarajendra Wadiyar X is a must-visit place in Bangalore. Standing the test of time, the palace is still the property of the Wodeyars of Mysore – in fact, the current Maharaja Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar was married there. Surrounded by massive grounds, the building, with an uncanny resemblance to the Windsor Castle, is great for history buffs and art lovers.

      Get Cuddles At CUPA

      CUPA’s Second Chance Adoption Centre in Dommasandra off Sarjapur Road is a sprawling two-acre facility for rescued pups meant for adoption.

Just call and let the staff at the center know you’re coming. And remember, if you’ve always wanted a dog, this is the perfect place to adopt, not shop.

Built in the 15th Century, both the fort and Nandi temple are steeped in rich heritage. You will find a stone plaque and a large memorial marking the place as Tipu Sultan’s birthplace at the fort, and a colonial era guesthouse atop Nandi Durga.
