Malleshwaram Walk

Come with us on a walk through Malleswaram, the part of Bengaluru which captures the imagination of both Bangaloreans and outsiders with its South Indian facets situated in a modern setup.

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 takes 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.
