Basavangudi is one of the few areas in Bangalore that have retained its old-world charm. A residential area with quaint homes, leafy roads, markets and temples, a walk here can take you back in time. Always buzzing with activity, Basavanagudi buzzes even more feverishly before festivals. There are numerous restaurants here, some institutions in themselves. This is a good place to feast on idlis (savory cake), dosas (savory pancakes) and the famous filter kaapi (coffee).

If you want to taste traditional/old Bengaluru, visit to Basavanagudi is a must. Dont miss Dodda Ganapati temple, Basavanagudi (Bull temple) & Gandhi bazaar. Vidyarthi bhavan (for masala dosas and rava vadas) & Roti ghar are two of the most famous eateries around Basavanagudi.
