The charm of historic Bangalore is most appreciable in Malleswaram. This district has it all: school, universities and temples (like the famous Sai Baba temple or the Bull temple, a small, old Hindu temple built around an enormous statue of a bull, carved from a gigantic rock), shopping malls, of which Matri Square Mall is the most famous (Mantri Square Mall is the biggest mall in India and even South Asia), lots of green and several (vegetarian) dining options. And everything is within walking distance. All of this makes Malleswaram a bustling city within a city. At its heart is the market, where you can buy many local and unique products. In short, it’s a paradise for shopaholics and foodies.
