The market surprisingly is very clean and organized. There are food stalls on either side of the road. I go here to buy authentic kannada style sweets.

Basvangudi gives you the true feeling of Bangalore of old times , the market and several houses being more than 100 year old . The bakeries, the textile shops, home made snack shops and the temples.. makes it a very homely earthy experience to enjoy

The flower market, fruits, the restaurant - Vidyarthi Bhavan all a perfect mix of local culture. Would highly recommend for someone who likes to soak into old Bangalore way of life.
