Pettah Walk in Cottonpet : In Search of Faith
In our fourth walk in the Pettah area, we take the guests on a journey in search of "Faith".
On this walk in the western part of Kempe Gowda's Pettah area, we visit the shrine of the biggest Sufi dargah in Bangalore. We not only learn more about Sufism, but learn about how this dargah has promoted communal harmony since the past two centuries and more.
We than vist a ayurvedic massage center to see how bones are set right. Legend has it that at one of these centres, was patronised by the Maharaja of Mysore as would the pehelwans in these areas who practised khusti in the numerous akhadas.
We also visit an old temple/s associated with a saint/s who left his/their mark on the locality. If time permits we will also visit a garadi mane & a heritage lodge closeby.
Last but not the least we treat our guests to a nice traditional, South Indian breakfast at a heritage restaurant in the area.
