Even after their stay in India, the British left tangible remains of their rule. Along with the change in government, they left for us architecture to revel at. Take the Bungalow walk and discover Bangalore’s old, gorgeous bungalows. The Cathedral walk takes you through cathedrals, which still resound with the prayers from their day.
TOWNS OF BANGALORE
Bengaluru's 'Bangalore' has many towns - Richmond Town, Benson Town, Cox Town, Fraser Town etc.- with an English past. Admire the architecture of the ancient cathedrals, the monkey tops and the trellises of tiled tall roofed bungalows, a lifestyle far more relaxed than the modern world.
The Towns of Bangalore, beyond the English, were a mix of diverse cultures and communities, bound by businesses and trade.
Walk with us down the memory lane as we visit an Anglican era through the streets of Cleveland Town, Fraser Town and Richards Town in an area called ‘Bangalore East’.
Bangalore’s history is a tale of two cities — the Indian City or 'Pete' and the European Cantonment with Cubbon Park serving as a bridge between the two. Walk back into 20th century Bangalore along the trees at Cubbon Park.
Sri Chamarajendra Park, more popularly known as Cubbon Park, is more than a park. Walk through this green lung space, that is home to a great many species of plants and birds, Victorian buildings & statues, the State Parliament and a tennis court among many other things.
As we park walk, learn of a Victorian era when where men wore top hats and memsahibs held parasols, when people commuted on horseback and danced in the ballrooms of Parade road.
