Old Bangalore Tour On Two Wheels!
This intriguing cycling trip starts from the Cottonpete area, which gets its name from the famous cotton sarees that are created here, especially for ravishing brides. We get a chance to explore the old-world charm of this place with a visit to the community house and the busy saree-making factory. Then, we will visit the more than 300-year-old Tawakkal Mastan Dargah, named after the Sufi saint who worked as a mason under Tipu Sultan and Hyder Ali.
From there, we move on to the famous and every bustling KR Market, where different types of vibrant flowers are an absolute treat to the eye. Later, we cross through calm and serene Cubbon Park, one of India’s biggest parks, and learn about its engaging history and the reason it was created. When we stop to visualise Sir Mark Cubbon and other British officers riding their horses through the beautiful streets of Bengaluru, it’s like taking a journey back in time.
We end this engaging tour with a sumptuous breakfast at a legendary heritage eatery.
