About
Malleswaram, that bastion of Tamilians in Bangalore, is another locale that is a whole world away from India’s silicon city. Watch maamis in their kanjeevarams haggle in the market, visit a temple or two, eat local food and browse through small shops. The Kaadu Malleswara Temple and Sankey Tank are oases of calm amid the bustle. A new arrival on the scene is the incongruous Mantri Mall, much reviled for being the harbinger of modernization in Malleswaram.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Malleswaram/Sadashivnagar
One of the greenest neighbourhoods in the city with a fresh fragrant atmosphere, Malleswaram is a centuries-old residential area, known for its rich local history and ancient temples. Full of old-world charm, the leafy streets are well suited to nature lovers with its walkable sidewalks while the commercial lanes are most popular for shopping and eating in the purest ‘South Indian’ way. Home to a cluster of attractions for art and theatre fans, visitors must walk along Sampige Road – a popular hub for saree shopping in the city, while Margosa Road is full of rustic eateries serving the best South Indian snacks in the city including Benne Dosa at CTR (Shri Sagar). A visit to Sankey Tank is perfect for morning and evening strolls, while as you drive down further, the lanes of Sadashivnagar – an upmarket neighbourhood created out of the former royal gardens of the Bangalore Palace.

Beautiful temple with very artistic gopurams and ornate sculptures. Dress code is mandated and women have to have to tie hair before entering. Could do Darshan at leisure as got there by 8:30am.

Being born in Bengaluru and brought up near Malleshwaram I can attest this is one of the very few piece of our glorious past retaining the heritage, culture, local way of life.

Even time I visit India, Malleshwaram is a must visit place. The divine temples, market, local shops and eats are always worth.

In my humble opinion Malleshwaram, Gandi Bazaar must be brought under national monument and protect from any further destruction. If both these areas as razed the city liberally will lose it's real identity.

Plan to spend at least 3 hrs in this old locality of Bengaluru. Walk across its roads soaking in the atmosphere. There are many temples, old eating joints and vendors selling flowers, fruits, vegetables and small nick knacks. It is one of those few old localities that have still manged to hold on to their heritage and charm.
