15th Cross Malleshwaram / Temple Street




Waiting for the sun.


Which Nallah? What Drain? Pictures of life along  the banks of the drains in Bangalore. 

Downstream from Sankey Tank. 

It's all downhill for the drain that flows down from Sankey Tank. Within a hundred meters from where the drain starts, it becomes a rivulet with all-year flow of sewage.    

Like Cauvery has Talacauvery, this drain has a starting point too. At the beginning of the drain is the Malleshwaram Dhobhi Ghat. The water required to wash the tonnes of laundry from hotels and households in Northern Bangalore comes from the groundwater that's charged by the Sankey Tank. 

These pictures are from the Ghat that operates from a temple that forms the boundary between Malleshwaram and Vyalikaval.
