Bangalore or Bengaluru, also known as the Silicon valley of India, will greet you with dreamy weather, Carnatic fusion melodies, a signature breakfast of masala dosa and filter coffee, and notorious traffic. Bangalore serves as a comfortable cohabitation of tradition and modernisation that can be seen throughout the places to visit in the city, with throngs of vibrant Kannada temples coexisting with budding start-ups. Travel to Bangalore city for the lively cafes, quirky shops and a fascinating contemporary culture. Visit classic attractions such as the Bangalore castle known for its Tudor-style architecture and Tipu Sultan’s summer palace that dates back to the 17th century. To get your art fix in Bengaluru, you could head to the fascinating Venkatappa Art Gallery. One of the more popular things to do in Bangalore city is to take a walk through the green spaces of the 19th century old Cubbon Park, that were once the reason why Bangalore was known as the Garden City. Bengaluru’s Vidhana Soudha, the Neo-Dravidian granite palace is also must visit places for the architecture aficionados. Tourists can head to Bengaluru’s much revered Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR), for authentic south Indian food and Toit’s, the brick-walled microbrewery for a cold beer.
Our first major attraction of Wayanad was “Thirunelli temple”. Set over a cliff, this temple makes one spellbound as one gets inside further. On approaching, one can see the idol situated within a dark structure. As we walk down the staircase to the waterside, the beauty says it all. A place to deposit the ashes of mortal remains, the waterside area is actually very peaceful and surrounded by green trees and rocks with water flowing over them gently. The premises of the temple is quite big, incorporating the shops with display of local and famous Kerala products like spices, wooden articles, nettipattam (a wall hanging similar to what elephants a made worn during festivals) etc. It is said that elephants often come to drink water from this place. The risk reduces, if there is parade of elephants but if there is a single elephant then one needs to be very cautious as this mighty animal might go wild and become dangerous.
