Museums of Bangalore: Indian Musical Experience

Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI 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

Overview: We had to attend a wedding in Hosahalli (Shimoga) in March 2021 so we thought of visiting a few places around Shimoga which we hadn't seen before.

We started from Bangalore on Saturday early morning at around 6:15am and stopped for breakfast near Dabaspet. We had light breakfast and headed towards our first destination, Baggavalli, which was still around 200kms away. The drive via Hiriyur - Ajjampur was very scenic with good roads and we were surprised to see greenery even during the summer months. We reached Baggavalli at around 11:30am and were happy to see a Hoysala temple after a long time. This is a 13th century temple and dedicated to Sri Narasimhaswamy. Unfortunately, the temple was closed when we went there and the priest had gone to a nearby village.

We were impressed to see most of the carvings still intact on the outer walls of the temple, and being a Vaishnava temple, we could see Dashavatara carved at multiple places. We spent around 40 mins in the temple premises admiring the architecture before we set towards our next destination.

Since it was already close to 12:30pm, we decided to stop at Tarikere for lunch. We took the veg meals which was a decent lunch for us. From Tarikere, we turned left towards Bhadra Wildlife sanctuary as we had a few more places to visit. We didn't stop at the Dam viewpoint since it was quite hot and sunny. We proceeded towards Someshwara temple in Sompura, which was quite close to the reservoir. Unfortunately this temple was closed too. Legend says that this place had the hermitage of Sage Jamadagni, and it was this place where Parashurama washed his axe. We saw the navaranga, which had lathe turned pillars, and were told that the interior of the temple was even more beautiful. One can also see small arches on the tower indicating the Indo-Sarsenic style of architecture.

After spending sometime we went to the nearby village of Shingapura to visit the Yoga Narasimhaswamy temple, which is completely in ruins. We could see a couple of men working on trimming the bushes near the temple and learnt that the structure is being rebuilt now.

From here we went to Amulya Shodha, a private museum which has a collection of antiques from the Hoysala, Keladi Nayakas and also until the 90s. The highlight of the place is the collection of Raja Ravi Varma Paintings, model of a traditional house, old coins and devices like typewriter. The place also displays the places to visit in Shimoga District.

It was late afternoon and we decided to call it a day and head towards our hotel in Shimoga.

  2. Ideally, you can start doing this THC detox method a couple of days before any drug test. All you’ll need here is half a lemon squeezed into a glass of water and you’re all set to get clean! What’s the most effective way to combat an unfairly stigmatized drug? Why, it’s with the use of the world’s most popular drug, of course: caffeine! Coffee is a diuretic, which means it promotes urination.) Certain synthetic urine kits can prove to be quite unreliable. Imagine getting caught trying to manipulate the results of a urinalysis test with fake urine! Here is a list of the best synthetic urine kits you can try out. Bleaching may not be sufficient in and of itself. To get the best results, you'll still need to use a detox shampoo. Visit: https://www.urineworld.com/
