Bangalore is the IT capital of India also called ‘Silicon Valley’, referring to the large electronic and computer companies that the city is rich. Bangalore also has many parks and palaces such as the botanical gardens of Lal Bagh with the Chrystal Palace. The Bull temple, dedicated to the Shiva’s mount, was built in Dravidian architecture. You will find a gigantic granite statue of Nandi, the bull of Shiva, of 5 meters high and 6 meters long. Cubbon Park, the Summer Palace of Tipu and Bangalore Palace are also interesting even though it is some faded glory. Walking through wide avenues with lots of trees you get a good impression of the city, which was once called ‘garden city of India’.

Bangalore is the pleasant and easy-going capital of the South Indian state of Karnataka and is also India’s fastest growing city.
A visit to the Bangalore Palace is a good introduction to the former Mysore Kingdom which ruled over a large part of South India. A one-hour audio tour takes the visitor through the grand ballroom and up the ornate staircase for a peek into the palace’s many bedrooms and a glimpse into the lives of the former royal family.
Bangalore’s many beautiful parks and streets lined with exotic flowering trees make it one of the greenest cities in India. Located right in the center of town is Cubbon Park, offering 300 acres of flora and fauna. Another favorite with nature lovers is the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, the home to many tropical trees, plants and exotic flowers and several species of birds.
