OTC Road




It's Urs time at the Dargah Hazrat Tawakkal Mastan and now is probably one of the best times to visit OTC Road in Cottonpet. The road is blocked late in the evening to set up the stage and hook up the concert size sound boxes. The music begins late and continues early into the morning filling the air with songs about love. Love for the lord above and his many forms that dot the Old Taluk Catchery Road (OTC). This road probably has the largest number of shrines rubbing shoulders with each other. Starting with the maginficent Dharmaraja Koil Temple on the Corporation end to The Dargah on the Cottonpet end. And that's the route the Benglur Karaga takes.






Yes. The Cottonpet Dargah has a special place because when the city celebrates its most important festival - The Benglur Karaga, this Dargah is a mandatory stop.
