Bengaluru – A Tourist’s Heaven

Legend has it that King Veeraballa of Vijayanagara once lost his way in a forest. Hungry and exhausted, he chanced upon an old woman cooking outside a hut. He begged her for food and was given a bowl of baked beans or ‘benda kallu’ in Kannada.

The king’s gratitude was so immense that he named the place after the dish. Hence the region came to be known as ‘Benda Kallu Ooru’, or ‘Land of baked beans’ which eventually became Bangalore.

Bangalore (Bengaluru), also known as the Silicon Valley of the south, is a perfect example of peaceful coexistence. Recent years have seen Bengaluru develop and grow exponentially, while staying true to its roots. Despite its gradual metamorphosis into a concrete jungle filled with corporates and high-end pubs, Bengaluru remains a tourist hub with several million tourists flocking to see the various sights in and around the city every year.
