MYSORE: Bombay Indra Bhavan, a well-known landmark on Sayyaji Rao Road and which tickled the taste buds of Mysoreans for over eight decades, was closed down on Monday.

The closure came after the hotel owners lost a legal battle with the building owners. Many of the old timers made it a point to visit the hotel whenever they were in the locality as many of its delicacies were popular.

It was known for pineapple kesari bath, idli-vada, masala dosa and coffee.

The hotel was started by Sait Badriprasad who hailed from Uttar Pradesh in 1936. Later, it was run by his sonJayaprakash and then Mohan Kumar.

Kumar said a court ordered him to vacate the premises by October 10.However, sources said they are looking for a new facility to start afresh. Some of the VIP customers at the hotel included former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, late matinee idol Rajkumar and actor-Housing Minister Ambareesh.
