A Stone Unturned: Rediscovering Bangalore's Heritage

Every day I travel from my home in Bangalore to Electronics City. You've no idea how exasperating it is to cross the flyover known as Silk Board Junction if you haven't experienced it yourself. But yesterday was different. I was actually excited about crossing Silk Board. The reason: I was visiting a small village called Begur alongside Hosur Road. This unremarkable place has garnered attention thanks to the excavation of a rock with early medieval inscriptions in the 1000-year-old Naganatheshwara Temple.
