The house of Karnataka's State legislative assembly, "The Vidhana Soudha" and the center of Justice of the city, "The Attara Kacheri " are two monumental buildings standing right in the heart of the City. The Neo Dravidian style Vidhana Soudha constructed using only pure Granite and Porphyry is an architectural genius of Sri Kengal Hanumantaiah, the second Chief Minister of the state of Karnataka. This magnificent building houses a central dome sixty feet in diameter supported by eight huge pillars and is breathtakingly amazing when it is fully illuminated.
This expanse of greenery is one of India's most beautiful botanical gardens. It was laid out by Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan in the 18th century. Within the Gardens there is a beautiful lake with a water spread area of 1.5 Sq.Kms dotted with picturesque tiny islands.
This 135 year-old park is a 300 acre oasis of greenery in the heart of modern Bangalore. The park was laid out in 1864 by Lord Cubbon, the then viceroy of India. The red Gothic structures of the State Central Library and the High Court enrich the natural beauty of the park. The park houses a number of significant institutions like the Cheshire Dyer Memorial Hall, Ottawa Chatter, Museum, Century Club and the Press Club.
This beautiful 125 year-old structure with its Corinthian columns houses one of the oldest museums in the city. The museum boasts an exquisite collection of coins, sculptures, inscriptions, old paintings and excavated items.
The palace was first a mud-brick defence built by Kempegowda in 1537. Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan later rebuilt it 1791.The two-storied structure (replica of the a Daria Daulat in Srirangapat- nam) served as Tipu's summer retreat, which he endearingly called lask-e-jannat (the envy of heaven). An inscription on the wooden screen describes the palace as the 'abode of happiness', almost mocking the ruins that surround it.
One of the oldest temples in Bangalore, the Bull Temple is situated in Basavanagudi and dedicated to Nandi, the mount of Lord Shiva. The 4.5-metre tall and 6 metre long monolithic bull is supposed to be older than the temple housing it. It is believed that the source of the river Vishva Bharti originates at the foot of the statue.
The ISKCON provides much more for the soul, than those rituals. ISKCON are centers of spiritual learning through Godly association, where a visitor is inspired to learn more about Spiritual life. There is a magnificent main temple hall, which houses the altars of their Lordships Sri Radha Krishna-Chandra, Sri Krishna Balarama & Sri Nitai Gouranga. Also one can see the Golden Chandelier that is shaped like an inverted Lotus Flower.
