How is a city born? What are the myths and legends that give birth to its name? How does a cityscape transform and adapt with time? What is the price it pays for progress? This book, with rare photographs and insightful narrative traces how a small mud fort built by Kempe Gowda, became a bustling cosmopolitan city, often hailed as the ‘Silicon Valley of India’. Today, with dazzling malls, pubs, and cafés at every corner—is the city at a risk of losing its heritage?Printed Pages: 288 with 174 colour photographs.
