Photos: Bengaluru, India – The City of Technology and Religion

While staying in Hosur for a few days, my host decided to take me up to Bengaluru for a day so I had an opportunity to see that city. I didn’t realize how important that city was in India. It’s considered the Silicon Valley of India. I didn’t get the opportunity to see the various tech companies that it’s known for. Instead, I had my first dosa there. Oh man did I love it. I quickly started falling in love with Indian food.

I also got to see how deeply religious the people of India are. I visited areas of the city popular with Christians, Hindus, and Muslims. Unlike in the US, religion is on full display everywhere you go in India. It’s a huge part of the culture. Hindu statues decorate the city while hints of Christian and Muslim religious symbolism can also be seen.
