CELEBRATION TIME: This ride is our celebration ride as BANGALORE MOTORCYCLE CLUB completes 1 YEAR of successful riding. We have been organizing rides for every month in the past year and we will continue to do more rides in the future with even bigger plans.
For our anniversary ride, we have planned to ride to Shettihalli, Sakleshpura for the celebrations !!!
The Rosary Church at Shettihalli was built by French missionaries in 1860 for British estate owners around Sakleshpura. Every year as the monsoons fill up the reservoir, the church retires to the submerged world and as the water level recedes it emerges in all its glory. The church was reportedly built with mortar and bricks and a mixture of jaggery and eggs - the secret sauce that helped it withstand the elements for almost 150 years.
