Museums of Bangalore: Indian Musical Experience

Watch the video here: Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children. We then get inside the museum and the experience starts from the 3rd floor, where we are shown a small animated movie with different types of sound created by nature.

Overview: From Haveri our next plan was to visit a small village called Tilvalli. We went via the village of Kaginele, the birthplace of the great saint Kanakadasa. We reached Tilvalli at 12:15pm. It was cloudy so didn't feel the strain so much. The Shanteshwara temple in Tilvalli is not a very huge temple like in Haveri, but it is an ancient temple built by the Chalukyas in the 9th century. Keeping up to the name of the deity, the place is very silent and we cannot see many people around the temple. The architecture is very much similar to the temple in Haveri. Due to the increasing population and building roads, the temple is pushed to a side and is not even visible from the main road. We also saw some inscriptions around the temple but there was nobody to explain about it.

How to reach:  Bus: From Bangalore, there are direct buses to Hangal from Haveri, from there local autos can be hired to reach TIlavalli.
Car/Bike: From Davangere, head on NH4 directly to reach Haveri, from Haveri, head towards Hangal, from there, the village roads lead to Tilavalli.
Food/Accommodation: There are some medium budget hotels to stay in Haveri.

  4. Nice find. This temple's entrance (and elevation too) is similar to Tarakesvara temple of Hangal. Architecture is same as other temples of Haveri district- as Nagaresvaragudi at Bankapur and Purasiddeshvaragudi of Haveri.

    How far is Tilavalli from Kaginele?
