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. From there we enter an interacti

Magadi: Medieval Footprints


Overview: Magadi taluk is known for lot of history and being close to Bangalore, it is easy to explore. But lot of places around Magadi are still less visited by people from other towns.
Ranganathaswamy temple: This is a 11th century temple built by Chola kings which was later renovated during Vijayanagar rule. This temple has carvings inside the temple and inscriptions about the history. More details and pictures here -
Someshwara temple: This has resemblance to the Someshwara temples at Ulsoor and the one in Kolar. So this must be initially built by the Cholas and later expanded by Kempegowda. There is also a watch tower built by Kempegowda which is similar to the Kempegowda towers in Bangalore.

Fort: The walls of the fort built by Kempegowda can still be seen near the bus stand area.

Kalya caves: Around 10 kms from Magadi, we come across natural caves and cave temples where saints were known to meditate during ancient times. It requires climbing a series of steps and at a few places climbing on the rocks. But the climb is not tough.

Savandurga: Famous for rock climbing, this also has a Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple at the foothills which is visited by many people.

How to reach: Magadi is well connected by road from Bangalore and can also be reached from Bangalore-Mangalore highway. From Magadi one can hire private auto/taxi to roam around the taluk.
Food/Accommodation: Very limited options available for food. Its advisable to carry food from home. Also no options available for stay.
