Heaps of groundnuts, flavour and fair

The Kadlekai Parishe (groundnut festival) is a cultural tradition of Bangalore that has survived for over four centuries. One of the city’s oldest cultural events, it takes place on the last Monday of the Karthikaa month at the Bull Temple Road in Basavangudi  . This year there were a lot more people than the last year, by eye witness accounts. Amoghavarsha visited the festival and snapped up these moments.

  1. Putting huge photos of local leaders against the backdrop of these ancient temples is just not correct. Peanuts were only a small part of the whole fair. Thanks for nice piks.
