Walk Through Malleswaram With Sujatha Balakrishnan!
Have you ever wondered how Malleswaram got the pin code 3? Did you know that the St. Peters Pontifical Seminary at 18th Cross was where wounded World War II soldiers were treated? Join Trip360 and uncover more such hidden gems on an exploratory tour of Malleswaram, led by our expert guide Sujatha Balakrishnan, who is also a teacher, counsellor and a theatre actor. As a history teacher, she is passionate about digging out stories from the past and believes that everyone should know the glorious history of the cities they live in.
Malleswaram, founded in response to the bubonic plague that hit the city in 1898, is home to academic institutions par excellence, restaurants that offer gastronomic delights, and temples galore. It has a rich industrial history, dating back to the Mysore Sandal Soap and Mysore Lamp factories in the early 20th century, and also boasts of various dance and music studios and cultural icons.
Starting from the Kadu Malleswara Temple, you’ll walk across the beautiful flower-lined Sampige and Margosa roads, and enjoy the sensory delights of the fruit and vegetable market. You will also visit a couple of heritage buildings and learn about the history of the 115-year-old Venugopalaswamy temple, built by the Wodeyars, before concluding the walk at New Krishna Bhavan, a famous restaurant with a fascinating story. Wrap up your walk by treating yourself to mouth-watering culinary fare as you listen to the story of the ‘Mill to the Mall’.
