Located in the heart of Central Bangalore, Ulsoor Lake is sometimes described by new residents of the city as "a small lake, nothing remarkably exceptional... this place can be skipped." But as many old Bangaloreans will tell you, that view couldn't be further from the truth.

As a part of this walk, you will catch an "Ulsoor sunrise" and discover 18 heritage and cultural spaces that dot the landscape of this ancient site, the last surviving lake created by the Gowda kings. As we visit each of these landmarks, in the course of just three hours, you will get a glimpse of the many intersections of history around this one site that shaped the multi-layered story of Bangalore. At the end of the walk, you will not just have experienced the many influences that make a "Bangalorean", but you will also take away a unique insight into the "Bangalore story".

The walk winds up with an English breakfast at a local cafe.

I am the the founder of “History In Your Backyard”, a community initiative to help new, old and visiting Bangaloreans rediscover the history of the city in its everyday spaces. Over the last 15 years, my work as a photographer has documented the many histories of the city and its evolution. I am also the author of "Ginger Soda Lemon Pop", a novella on growing up years, set in Bangalore of the 80s. Each of my specially curated walks are based on all of my life's experiences, and help you uncover the city's many histories, just below the surface, for all those who will stop to look.

Christina did not go for the obvious, she went for the details, the hidden gems! It was a lovely day and Christina had a bunch of stories to share about each bit of the park. She made it fun, took all the questions nicely and took us on a trip in time! It was clear how important that story was for her personally, which made it even better. She shared with us her ideas of other walks, and I'd love to do all of them =)

Christiana was so nice and kind. She shared her knowledge and gave me an original and intimate perception about Bangalore. I absolutely recommande the tour with her.

I had a great time with Christina despite the terrible rain. She managed to turn around what could have been a fiasco into a great car guided tour. Christina is wonderfully knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Bengaluru and India in general. Thanks to her, I will always look at India buildings, and Indian street names differently. I warmly recommend.

My husband and I really enjoyed our walking tour with Christina. She gave us a lot of interesting insights into Bangalore, some macro-level history, and some stories relating to specific areas of the city. Christina is energetic and passionate and we felt like we had a lot more context for our stay in Bangalore after meeting her. Highly recommend this walking tour!

Christina's walk around Ulsoor lake was a good introduction to the history of Bangalore and covered many of the influencers and influences that make it what it is today. An eye opener for me .
