Basavanagudi literally translated means ‘The temple of the Bull’. From a quaint village with a temple for the bull, it transformed into one of the oldest suburbs of Maharaja’s Bengaluru & a literary hub. The street names and landmarks give a peek into some famous 20th century Indian personalities – Gandhi Bazaar, Tagore Circle, Vivekananda Circle. Largely South Indian, the markets & the temples reveal a Bengaluru very different from the ‘IT City’ image of Bangalore.
