I – After Goa, Mombai and Dehli the time came for the national team to go to Bengaluru to fulfil 3 weeks of training. I’ve arrived on the 15th of August, Independence Day. India gained its independence from the rule of the British in 1947.

II – The weather in this pleasant city with a lot of green areas, is more steady with low humidity. Even there were a lot of raining Bengaluru is one of the best places in India to training right now. The main football stadium have a great pitch, and the team works very well.

III – I thought I would find a small city but the population is 8,5 million. A completely different of what I am used to. Bengaluru is the Silicon Valley of India, the capital of high technology. When we have some free time, we visit some interesting city spots. We have been in one of the most famous parks: Lallbagh, with a wide variety of plants, lakes, birds and monkeys.

IV- But also visit: Bangalore Palace,  Bull Temple , Shivoham Shiva Temple and St. Mary’s Basilic. 

25th of August 

Today Ganesh Chaturthi, the son of Shiva and Parvati,is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shukla chaturthi (four day of the waxing moon period).

The festival marks a day on which Lord Ganesha makes his presence on earth for all his devotes.

Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify, os one of the faith’s most important deities of Hinduism. He is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.

I visited the temple in honor of his father Shiva in Bengaluru.
