One circle and five temples?

Let me try a Google Earth quiz again.

1) The tough one first. There are five temples right on and around this circle. One each at 6 o’clock, 8 o’clock, 10, 12 and 4.
Clue #1: Oldest of these was built around 72 years ago.
Clue #2: Gentleman.


Want more clues?

Clue #3: VB at 5 o’clock.

2) To compensate for above, here is the easy one. The most famous flyover (update: in positive sense) in Bangalore:

    And funnily, I don’t know the flyover. Is it the Hebbal flyover?
    I love your Google Earth quizzes! :)

    If you tell it is the most famous, then I am tempted to answer that as the Jayadeva Flyover. But I have not been to that area and I am not able to recognize the landscape around the flyover. So… my guess is, well, only a guess!

    And where is that circle? I would want to visit that place.

    Sajjan Rao Circle No doubt!

    Gentleman = Sajjan

    VB refers to the bakery ~VB Bakery (or something suchlike)

    this is cool! what are the prizes?

    Right Santosh/Sleepyface/Shruthi. I thought Sajjanrao circle will be a tough one. How wrong!

    VB Bakery is a famous landmark in V V Puram (Vishweshwarpuram). Try “Kesar Ban” and faint with bliss right there!

    R_C – I meant famous in the positive sense. Hebbal is the most well done flyover in Bangalore as of today.

    Here is how to get to Sajjanrao Circle. Get to South End Circle, and then head towards the National College flyover. Just as you see the flyover, turn right (before it) and you will hit this ring of temples.

    Prizes. Hmm. How about winner gets to submit the next GE quiz!? Mail your trivia to silkboard {at} gmail dot com.

    Sajjan Rao circle is darn easy, especially for long time Bangaloreans who know the old city. Where else would you go for a late-night thindi? :)

    I could get that without reading the clues. How?
    1. The garden inside, and its oval shape
    2. 5 roads, the angles where the roads meet the circle, and the treeline hiding one road completely!

    Good choice for the quiz and interesting clues too. :)

    As you move the mouse cursor on pictures…it display the file names sjr.jpg & hbl.jpg…By namee and knows little bit of Bangalore can answer the quiz…

    sjr.jpg = Sujjan Rao Circle
    hbl.jpg = HeBbaL Fly over

    — Rajkumar

    Silkboard, for me at least, the hint “Gentleman” was a dead giveaway ;)

  10. silkboard (unregistered) on September 12th, 2006 @ 5:11 pm

    Rajkumar, that was smart. I did try to keep image file names not that obvious, but sjr and hbl were. So was Gentleman.

    Basically, being a non-native Bangalorean, I under-estimated Sajjan Rao circle.

    Arun – ‘angles at which roads meet the circle’ – god! You seem to be a real old timer.
