Mi casa su casa: Visits to Bangalore's century old Bungalows
Since the capture of Bangalore from the unwavering clutches of Tipu Sultan, several British families have made Bangalore their home. The flourishing cantonment north of the beautiful Cubbon Park was almost British in its making: wide roads lined by trees, locally brewed foreign alcohol, the early entry of cars and the Bungalows they were parked in. With wide garden space around the house, built in typical British grandeur, tall roofs to allow air to come in, the now slowly disappearing old Bungalows of the city tell the tales of the needs, preferences and culture of the time.
Soaking in the old world charm of Richards Town, catch a breath of fresh air and some snippets of local history in the verdant Richards Park. Also to see are a few pretty yesteryear villas and local churches in the idyllic settings of a Paulogy, a unique gallery that takes viewers back to Bangalore of the 70s.
These walks are open to all, so expect to be walking shoulder to shoulder with people you may have never met before. The duration of a walk is approximately 3 hours. However, we will not be walking the entire time. Each walk will be relaxed and 'unhurried', with numerous stops and can be done by people of all ages and fitness levels.
