Walk: Life in the Pete - People, culture & lifestyle

Yes, most of us know that Kempegowda founded modern Bengaluru. He invited people of different trades to settle down here. However that is five centuries ago! Somehow history always stops at a certain point, e.g., 1947.

How was Pete (or City as we call it) in the 50s or 60s? What type of people live in modern City? What is the culture of this City? What are the occupations that have a colourful past? What is their state today?
Know all this and more through a walk in the area with Unhurried.

The walk starts at Chikka Lalbagh park and is around 4-5 hours long with plenty of rests in between.
Inclusions: Breakfast & Lunch
