Music Museums, Theatre And Bird-Watching: Five Things To Do In JP Nagar

Sreepathy posted on 15 February

Since we have already represented parts of South Bangalore through our nifty guides for Jayanagar, Banashankari, and Bannerghatta, it only makes sense that we cover the bustling suburb of JP Nagar. But instead of focusing on its diverse street food scene, we picked out five activities and things that you can do in JP Nagar.

Learn And Explore Indian Music

Bangalore’s first museum dedicated to music, Centre For Indian Music Experience, is a one-of-a-kind museum will have you exploring the world of Indian music through music installations, experiential activities, and classes. The outdoor sound garden has around 11 musical installations, all made entirely of natural elements like stone, metal and wood. Try playing them and you will feel the vibrations and have a quick lesson on physics 101.

Hit Bullseye

If you are interested in shooting as a sport, look no further than Golden Ace Shooting Academy. These guys offer personalised tips and guidance along with their foundation course that spans 24 sessions. In case you are looking to blow some steam or target practice, these guys allow you to with the only catch being that you need to be accredited by the Karnataka State Rifle Association {KSRA}. But hey, don’t let that stop you from signing up for their training sessions.

Catch A Play Or Performance

There’s no way that you are visiting JP Nagar and not popping into Ranga Shankara, arguably Bangalore’s biggest centre for theatre. It’s world-class facilities paired with the fact that it’s dedicated to celebrating the art form, expect the best performances. And the best part is you can catch plays here on a daily basis thanks to the ‘Play A Day’ mantra. Just be sure to check out the Facebook page whenever you are headed to JP Nagar. Tickets come at affordable prices and the only things they ask of you is to get to the play on time and maintain decorum. Also, founder Arundhati Nag will be around the cafeteria for a quick cuppa. Ever the charmer, it is interesting to speak with her and listen to her views on everything from theatre to current affairs.

Birdwatching By The Lakeside

The Puttennahalli Lake is a freshwater lake and a favourite bird-watching spot amongst the city’s avian enthusiasts and budding ornithologists. In fact, the folks have even set up a website where, till date, they have recorded about 106 species of birds. Some of these feathered friends include Red-whiskered Bulbul, White-throated Kingfisher, and the Brahminy Kite. Early mornings are the best time for bird-watching, so just be sure to bring your binoculars and DSLR camera.

Get Jamming With The Band

Looking for a jam space with your college or office band? Innerspace Studios is your answer. It’s one of Bangalore’s highest-rated recording studios and jam spaces, so we say gather the band and make it a worthwhile jam session. The place has got some killer equipment as well as a state-of-the-art recording studio, so rest assured that your next single will sound exactly the way you want it. The studio also offers classes in yoga and dance, as well as photography services. Maybe after the jam session, get yourself a band photo.
