Now the capital of Karnataka State, Bangalore was founded by Kempegowda in the early 16th century and became an important fortress city under Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan two centuries later though there are few remains from this period except for the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens. Bangalore is an excellent place to come if you're looking for a wide range of hotels, restaurants, films and other cultural activities otherwise its much-vanted 'attractions' are definitely over-rated. Bangalore means 'the town of beans'.
The central area of the Bangalore city is studded with beautifully laid out parks and gardens, wide tree-lined avenues, imposing buildings and lively bazaars. Situated 1000 metres above sea level and with a very pleasant climate it's the city to which people from all over India and from abroad have gone to look for work, business opportunities and higher education. As you might expect from a city of this nature the pace of life, like the intellectual and political climate, is brisk and hardly a day goes by without some new controversy boiling over across the front pages of its daily newspapers or into the streets.
Vidhana Soudha: This is Bangalore's — and indeed one of India's — most spectacular buildings. Built of granite in the neo-Dravidian style of architecture and located at the northern end of Cubbon Park it houses both the Secretariat and the State Legislature.The cabinet room is famous for its massive door made of pure sandal-wood. The building is floodlit on Sunday evenings and on public holidays. Visitors are allowed only after 5.30 pm and prior permission must be obtained to view the interior.
