May 4, 2017

Pettah walk in Nagarathpet : The silk tales.
Organised by Bengaluru by Foot

On this fourth walk of Bengaluru by Foot in Kempe Gowda’s “Pettah” area, the guests are taken on a darshan of one of the most popular temples in Bangalore which is also associated with the popular Karaga festival.

Join as you are taken on a walk along the narrow meandering lanes of the Pettah to know about it’s history as well as discover monuments hidden behind modern buildings.

But the main focus of this walk is a visit to the last few surviving weaver’s in this area who are engaged in the process of reeling & dyeing silk yarn as well as weaving it. Everyone walks into the comforts of an air conditioned showroom to buy a sarees, but come see the hard work which goes into making a silk saree.

If time permits you may also pay respects at the tombs of a few Sufi warriors who were martyred during the III Anglo-Mysore war in 1791.

The walk ends with a nice hearty breakfast at a South Indian outlet.
Cost of this walk is 600/- with 25% off for senior citizens above 60 years & children between 9-16 years.
