After a short visit to the Parliament building Vidhana Soudha and the adjacent park, we went to KR Market, an impressive combination of markets for fruits & vegetables, flowers, spices and tools (!), all under one roof. The neighbourhood did not disappoint either with its downtown cows near cramped temples. And – of course – dogs.
Only 15 km from Electronic City, a huge National Park with accompanying zoo sits within a hilly forest. The Northern part of the Park is open to “Safari”, which actually means driving through rather large enclosures for each species. Then there is a large butterfly conservatory, housed within an architecturally pleasing glass dome. Most impressions are from the walk-in Zoo part of the park, including the ever-present (sleeping) dogs.
Just some metres beyond the industrial zones, large residential areas bloom. Old neighbourhoods witness how skyscrapers pop up in their vicinity. And again, (sleeping) dogs everywhere.
Some impressions from Wipro Avenue (west part) before, during and after sunset. (Sleeping) dogs are a common sight. So is pollution from dusty roads and exhaust pipes.
