Ulsoor brings up a rather contrasting image in the minds of most Bangaloreans - on one side, it houses the bustling flower markets; on the other, the serene Ulsoor Lake. This imagery is rather descriptive of Ulsoor’s dichotomous identity. It is as modern as it is ancient, and it is as Indian as it is colonial.
Join us on this walk around the Ulsoor Lake, as we explore how different classes develop within the same geography. We will explore themes of cultural and environmental conservation, unique educationists, military heroes, and turn-of-the-century architecture. This walk will make you look beyond the bustling streets of Ulsoor, at the quiet heart of the city.
This guided tour is free.
