Walk though Ulsoor on Sunday, July 27th

INTACH Bangalore is organizing a walk through Ulsoor

A reminder about the upcoming Parichay event. We will visit the
Someshwara temple and then walk through parts of the Ulsoor area. You
probably already know that the Someshwara temple is one of Bangalore’s
oldest temples. It dates back to the Chola period with several
additions made during the Vijayanagar period by the founder of
Bangalore, Kempegowda. The interesting thing is you can see the
architectural elements from both these periods quite clearly in the
temple. Ulsoor is, of course, one of Bangalore’s oldest settlements.

Sathya Prakash Varanashi, former Professor & Head of the Department of
Architecture at Bangalore Institute of Technology, will lead us
through parts of the residential areas and markets of Ulsoor. HR
Prathibha, Convenor, Intach Bangalore, will talk to us about the

We will meet at 9:30 am on Sunday, 27th July 2008, outside the
Someshwara temple. We expect to finish the day’s programme by about
12:30. The temple is on a little lane opposite the Ulsoor Police
Station, off Old Madras Road. There is some parking available on the
lane outside the temple.

If you have questions, call Pankaj (93421 35215), Swathi (98451 32181)

Peytey,Kotey,Kerey,Thota….an inner-city heritage walk

8.00–11:30 A.M. ON SUNDAY, 18 MAY 2008

Now that you have explored Gavipuram (the first BCP Urban Space Event, held on March 8, 2008) and the Whitefield heritage space (held on 26 April 2008), it’s time to delve deeper into the City’s history and culture – with the Old City Urban Space Event; a walk titled “Kotay, Paytay, Keray, Thota – Changing Geographies & Fragile Futures.”

The history of a place is writ large on its cultural landscape. Opportunities exploited, imaginations expressed/withheld, memories recollected and forgotten, injustice and inequality negotiated from different positions of power and powerlessness. The city is fraught with complex and not-always-pretty stories.
