About
The temples of India are the backbones of Indian history, philosophy, art and architecture. We visit two places – the Yoganandi or just Nandi Hills and the huge Bhoganandi temple at the foot of Nandi hills. While Nandi Hills is known for its lovely views, birds, forts, the temple at its foothills is known for elaborate structures in stone, carvings of Shiva stories, a lovely step well, centuries old balance, a repentant King and of course the lovely decorated Nandis. Let’s hear the stories, learn a mudra or two at the temple of Shiva, the God of Dance. From here, we walk through the area known as Sultanpet where Tipu’s & the English history pop out as anecdotes. Further down is Muddenahalli, the home of Sir MV, whose small abode is a museum of his times. Returning back, one can see the fort of Devanahalli & the fit ones could walk on the ramparts and imagine the war torn times of Tipu Sultan.

Poornima is an amazing guide and masterful storyteller where she was able to weave history into interesting narratives about the different places we visited for this tour (ie., A Day in Nandi Hill).

I had a wonderful time learning about the architecture of the temples we visited, the appropriate way to receive and give offerings (ie., use your right hand, folks!), and just have a great time in general in Poornima's company.

She also knew a vast amount of history about other aspects of Bengaluru, including about the history of Indian Pale Ale, the culture of the city, etc. This made for a very fun car ride in between the places we visited.

I highly recommend doing this tour (or other Unhurried tours)! If possible, would give her more than five stars.
