Ancient Ulsoor extending beyond the south-eastern banks of the river is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city. Officially named Halasuru after the Kannada word for the jackfruit tree, a native that once flourished here. We’re convinced there isn’t a more attractive or historically prevalent town so centrally located in all of Bangalore. Peppered with temples connected by narrow winding streets; the romantic idyll of the Indian dream comes to life in this lakeside town. Notable structures in the area include the 16th Century Halasuru Someshwara Temple and 13th Century Sri Subrahmanya Templen Halasuru. Whether visiting to appreciate the mind-boggling architecture or the serenity within, both are worth a look. The INTACH conservation trust have listed no less than 90 heritage buildings of interest in the area. But Ulsoor is no relic. This neighbourhood is ageing masterfully with modern restaurants, stylish malls and chic residences dotting the skyline. The Skywalk building on Assaye Road is home to some of our favourite foodie joints. Watson’s and Lemirado are hugely popular with the locals for their sturdy western menus and bustling atmosphere. However, if you’re style is more home grown we recommend the irresistibly authentic aloo pyaz paratha at Parathe Wale Gali or the glorious Goan inspired menu at miniature Smally’s.
