While in Bangalore, a few friends and I decided to start the morning in Malleswaram. We picked up South Indian breakfast at Veena stores and then we headed over for a picnic at one of the pretty neighborhood parks for a laughter filled start to the day!
Malleswaram is one of the cultural hubs of the city and is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods. Filled with trees, parks, lots of Hindu temples, a fantastic flower and vegetable market and the hustle and bustle of stores and activity. It is one of my most favorite parts of the city to wander in and feel inspired. It also inspired the fictional book 'Malgudi Days' by author R.K. Narayanan. The title Malgudi is based on 2 neighborhoods of bangalore- Malleswaram and Basavangudi.
Here are some visual treats from our walk through the markets in the neighborhood.
