Anybody driving between Bengaluru and Mysuru, would speed past a sign reading "Welcome to the Silk City of Ramanagara" barely even noticing it. A small town with very few visitors, what looks like a forgotten place is in fact a mix of assorted sights. It was known as Shamserabad during the era of TipuSultan and Closepet during the British Raj era after Sir Barry Close.

At present the place is known as the Silk City, and is a major source of Mysore silk and is one of the largest silk cocoon markets in all of Asia. Besides learning more about the silk industry there is a lot more to do for a visitor to do in Ramanagara.

On your way into the town, you can grab a breakfast of thatte idllis at one of the many eateries across the highway and also have the mouthwatering 'Mysore pak' at Hotel Sri Janardhan.
