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.

Gurudwara Nanak Jhira, Bidar

Overview: The legend is that when Baba Guru Nanak visited Bidar around 500 years ago, he was moved by the plight of the people of Bidar who didn't have proper drinking water and the rains were also scarce in this region. So he uttered the words 'Sat Kartar' and removed a stone and to the surprise of everyone, water came gushing out of earth and till this date the spring has been providing clean drinking water to the people in Bidar. This holy place is called Nanak Jhira. Food is provided as 'Langar' for lunch and dinner inside the Gurudwara for all pilgrims.
