A week or so ago, got on the bike with a friend and went sight seeing. We were on the bike for a good four hours or so, and I ended up getting sunburns along my cheeks. Now I get why ladies use their shawls to cover their heads and faces. Here I thought, they did that because they were unhappy getting darker.
First we went on the new flyover connecting private traffic from Bommanahalli to Electronic city. And I spotted the Infosys building which I had never seen before. Quite a sight! Especially the sight of the background on the windows of the building.
Then we drove to Central Prison, with it's vastness and grayness I was dissuaded from taking any snaps. Tried to google the same, but doesn't look like there is a pic that exists of the same.
Then we went into Begur Road, to the 1300-year-old Sri Pancha Lingaeshwara Temple. Now in near ruin, desperately in need of a make over. Co-incidentally carvings on the temple are meant to have the first record of this city's name- Bengaluru. Given it's stature, I was surprised at its current state. We need to protect this heritage!
The evening settled and we ran into giant hanuman statue around HSR Layout. I'm unsure of where we were at this point, those of you more familiar with the area could give me some pointers of where this statue is located. It said something in Kannada, I'm sure it's one of the largest representations of the God, in some context. Just unsure of what context that would be.
Following the adventure of the day, we had lunch at this find rip off of KFC...BFC! It hosted specials like Zinker Burgers, and some originals like Filafils with garlic mayonaise.
I thought it was apt for us to cap the day off here, I thought BFC stood for Bangalore Fried Chicken.. but it was not to be. It stands for Bigboy Fried Chicken.. :(
So that was my Bangalorean Sunday Adventure. Plans for tomorrow may have Nandi Hills.. which I have never been to. Crossing fingers and hope it happens!
