This city walk explores the silk tales of Bangalore. Walk along the Kempe Gowda's "Pettah" (old city) area where you will be taken on a ‘darshan’ (sightseeing) of one of the most popular temples in Bangalore. Visit the last few surviving weavers in this area to see the hard work and sweat that goes into making a silk saree. The walk ends with a breakfast at a popular South Indian outlet. 

Get local with Bangalore city on this tour and get exposed to culture and arts indigenous to this city!

Your English speaking guide will meet you at Basavanagudi at 7am from where the walk will commence. Walk along the Kempe Gowda's "Pettah" (old city) area and visit one of the most popular temples in Bangalore. After, make your way to a 'Wrestling Akhada' (Wrestling Pit) to get a glimpse of how warriors were trained in the sport of wrestling a long time ago before the advent of gym culture.

You then come to the main focus of this walk, which is a visit to the last few surviving weavers in this area. They are experts in the process of reeling, dyeing silk yarn and weaving it. It’s easy for anyone to walk into the comforts of an air-conditioned showroom to buy a saree, but during this tour, you actually witness the hard work and sweat involved in the process and will appreciate how a silk saree is made.

Your walk ends with breakfast at a popular local South Indian outlet where you will enjoy delicious savoury delights.
