Private Silk Tales Walking Tour in Bengaluru Including Breakfast2 reviews
Your English speaking guide will meet you at Basavanagudi at 7am from where the walk will commence. Walk along the Kempe Gowda's "Pettah" (old city) area and visit one of the most popular temples in Bangalore. After, make your way to a 'Wrestling Akhada' (Wrestling Pit) to get a glimpse of how warriors were trained in the sport of wrestling a long time ago before the advent of gym culture.
You then come to the main focus of this walk, which is a visit to the last few surviving weavers in this area. They are experts in the process of reeling, dyeing silk yarn and weaving it. It’s easy for anyone to walk into the comforts of an air-conditioned showroom to buy a saree, but during this tour, you actually witness the hard work and sweat involved in the process and will appreciate how a silk saree is made.
Your walk ends with breakfast at a popular local South Indian outlet where you will enjoy delicious savoury delights.
