One of Bengaluru’s oldest established neighbourhoods, Malleshwaram lies to the northwest of downtown Bengaluru and southeast of Yeshwanthpur, and takes its name from the 17th-century Hindu Kadu Malleshwara Temple.
As one of the most sought-after residential areas in Bengaluru, Malleshwaram is home to people from all walks of life – prominent film stars, sports players, scientists and Nobel prize winners.
In an area set up for India’s movers and shakers, it’s little surprise Malleshwaram has lots to do and several luxurious hotels to stay in. Choose a four-star global chain hotel or book a room at one of Malleshwaram’s many unique three- and four-star independent hotels.
Malleshwaram also has both contemporary and traditional five-star accommodation, all with outdoor swimming pools, full-service spas, access to nearby golf courses and a range of on-site bars and restaurants.
If you’re in Malleshwaram for work, many of the luxury hotels have conference space and meeting rooms as well as business centres, limousine services, free valet parking and airport shuttles.
Choose to stay in the Malleshwaram neighbourhood and you’ll be well placed to explore everything Bengaluru has to offer. Nearby attractions include the huge ISKCON temple, one of the largest in the world on Hare Krishna Hill.
Visit the Tudor-style Bangalore Palace either on a tour of the building or on a stroll through the grounds. You could time your visit to the palace for a music concert – among many others, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Elton John have all played the palace.
On the north side of the palace grounds is Snow City – an indoor ski slope – and Fun World amusement park.
Bengaluru is also known as Garden City, with loads of parks to explore. Check out Bugle Rock Park which houses the famous Bull Temple, and Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain Park, which hosts a twice nightly music and lights show.
Cubbon Park – the main park in Bengaluru and known as the city’s green lung – houses numerous government buildings, including the Karnataka High Court, the Central Library and the State Archeological Museum.
From your hotel in Malleshwaram, explore the more luxurious side of Bengaluru.
