It is important to be rooted to the place one belongs to," says Vinayak Hegde, a software consultant and an avid traveller. At a time when travel is becoming nothing less than a way of life, backpackers are ready to journey across the world for a glimpse of exotic places. However, with a focus on going international, most of us have somewhere forgotten to look back at the rich heritage and history that we can find within our own shores. "India has a history that goes back more than 1,000 years and one can spot several reminders of this in Bengaluru alone. From age old temples and monuments to the vibrant flora and fauna, there are ample things to see within the city and around it," says Vinayak. Avalabetta, Lepakshi, Hogenakkal Falls, Nandi Hills, Halasuru and Malleswaram are a few of the places that he points out. He says, "The best part is Bengaluru is very strategically placed where states like Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and the Western Ghats are easily accessible. The Western Ghats, in particular, ...
