Bangalore might have become an IT hub, a new urban center with all the trimmings of a fast-paced, modern life. But history cannot be erased, and on the outskirts of Bangalore stand three places, clustered together, so steeped in history and culture that they stand as testament to their fares. These three places are Melkote, Srirangapatna, and Mysore all of which can easily be reached by the Bangalore - Mysore Highway. Being not more than a 2 hour drive one way, an overnight journey will give us plenty of time to do justice to these places.
Our guides will not just focus on the central tourist attractions, but also those aspects of these places that often get shadowed by the more popular spots. Often just pilgrimage sites due to the proliferation of temples, the stories of the temples and gods here do tend to dwarf sometimes the people of these historical places, whose life, perhaps, was as fantastical as the myths of divinity. The guided tour will take you through the history, culture and nature of these places, where you can walk around, spend time, and enjoy and learn about the place you have visited, instead of rushing around hitting the 'must-see' spots.
