Once upon a time in Johnson market.

September 30, 2016

Once upon a time in Johnson market.
A Walk organized by Bengaluru by Foot.

Come talk a walk with us as we discover Johnson market & it’s surroundings in a whole new perspective. You not only explore this tiny little British era market, but also learn more about the Shia connection to this area. Decades ago a man from Persia decided to make this area his home. Today there are a few roads and localities named after him and his descendants which most Bangaloreans don’t know about.

Also on the agenda are a visit to a legendary bakery in this area, sipping some Sulaimani chai, learning about the martyr’s of Karbala & paying a visit at the local church.

After a quick introduction about this area, you get a chance to visit the heritage spots in this area. In between byte’s of history, and you will be having bites of the local delicacies too.

Please wear comfortable footwear and keep a cap handy too,
Please keep an umbrella or raincoat at hand,
Since we will be visiting places of worship it is advised to be appropriately dressed for this,
Photography is allowed at most places unless specified or mentioned.
Please carry your own drinking water bottles too.
Dress code : wear black if possible as people will be commemorating “Muharram” then.

Tickets available online on Events High:

Walk on Saturday 1st October 2016 | 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
