The story of Basavanagudi begins in the late 1800s and features a variety of eclectic personalities from literary geniuses to unrelenting entrepreneurs, who found in this neighborhood a space for conversation, commerce, and culture.

 

This walk provides an introduction to the oral histories and built heritage of an area that blurs the boundaries between what’s modern and what’s ancient.

Sahapedia Heritage Walk- Glimpses of an old garden city- a walk through Basavanagudi

Bengaluru is traditionally known for its parks and gardens. With the rapid urbanisation and fast-disappearing lung spaces in the city, Basavanagudi is one of the areas which still has some of the best parks and gardens, reminding us of the old-world charm of the city. While Lalbagh is known to many people, there are many more parks in the neighbourhood which one can enjoy. In this walk, we will explore Krishna Rao Park and Bugle Rock Park in Basavanagudi area, amidst grandiose trees alive with the chirping of birds.
