Bangalore City Tour

Bangalore FortThe Bangalore Fort and Palace : The Fort of Bangalore was built by Kempe Gowda and was later expanded by the legendary king Tipu Sultan. This summer palace has been constructed largely of wood and is famous for its carving and paintings. The Venkataramanaswamy temple, built in the 17th century by the Wodeyar family is a splendid example of Dravidian temple architecture. Within its periphery is the well preserved 16th century Ganapathi Temple. Nearby is The Palace Hyder Ali begun and Tipu completed.

 

Lalbagh Flower ShowLal Bagh : This botanical gardens has over 1000 species of flora. The Glass House is the center of attraction in this 2400-acre park. The ancient ruler Hyder Ali laid it out and later his son added horticultural wealth to them by importing trees and plants from several countries.

Cubbon Park : This 120-hectare wooded and flowered park was laid out in the heart of the Bangalore bivouac in 1864. Since then, more fairy fountains, august bandstand and a wealth of flora have been added. The other most attractive aspect of Cubbon Park is the upcoming newer buildings.

Night View of Vidhana SoudhaVidhana Soudha : This splendid building is a marvel of modern architecture and is a perfect amalgamation of traditional neo-Dravidian and modern styles. It is the home of the State Legislature and the Secretariat and dominates the northern boundary of the Cubbon Park. The most spectacular feature of this imposing building is the massive sandalwood door of the Cabinet room. It becomes beautiful on a holiday evening when lit with myriad lights.

The Bull Temple : Kempe Gowda built this temple. The center of reverence is a magnificent Nandi, which is 15 feet tall and over 20 feet long. A festival is celebrated here each year in November or December every year. When the groundnuts have been harvested, a groundnut fair is held near the temple. The farmers offer the first groundnuts to the sacred bull.
