The Majestic Metro interchange underground-

Looking at the progress (also by the pic posted by BMRCL on twitter), it will be a + interchange and not a T interchange. From the newly opened terminal 3 of KSRTC, one can get a view of almost the entire area under construction. So if any of you intend to take a photo, head over there. Since I had gone in the late evening, could not get a clear one.

At the location where I have marked the red line in the picture below, I noticed an arch on which ‘Continental…’ was written, like the one present where the TBMs have been launched. Also, the Gubbi Thotadappa Road in front of the black rectangle (signifying the area occupied by the BMRCL ) had steel decks. That might be the place where the pocket track will be located. Drilling the three tunnels and the crossovers between them through TBMs might be expensive and time consuming. So the space from one end of the station to the place where the TBMS will be launched might be cut and cover. The TBMs might be boring only under the 8 railway tracks till the city Railway station metro station.
( The location of the red line is not exact. Its somewhere within the area occupied by BMRCL)

The blue dot is the place where Ayyappa temple is located

Thank you for your nice comment.
The "Indian style" buildings are a part of old Bangalore that Purple line passes through. Unfortunately, many are dilapidated with residents living there for many generations. Bangalore grew from a city of 5.6 million in 2001 to a city of 8.7 million in 2011; most of those areas were built with modern architecture.
It's nice to still be able to see the different eras this city has lived through.
