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.

Lost temples of Karnataka: Shivalaya, Arasikere

Overview: A wonderful temple dedicated to Shiva known as 'Shivalaya' is present on the Chikkatirupathi road in Arsikere. Its a Hoysala temple dating back to the 13th century. An unusual feature of this temple is a dome shaped hall which was probably used for discussions. The intricate carvings on the walls are typical Hoysala style.

How to reach: By Car: We started from Bangalore taking the Bangalore-Mangalore road, before Bellur Cross, watch out for a sign board indicating Turuvekere. Turn left and reach Turuvekere. From there proceed towards Aralaguppe, from there, take the forest road which leads to Arsikere. From there Haranahalli is around 8kms. After Haranahalli, we proceeded towards Javagal.
Food/Accommodation: Accommodation is available in Arsikere. So plan to reach Arsikere by evening to make the night stay.
