Guest Post by Steven De Nazareth
Bangalore is known for many different things – the delicious food, the software and IT Industry, and as the garden city of India. It’s also my current home. It’s easily accessible and once you get here, it’s time to start exploring. You can take a Go Indigo flight from anywhere in the country and you’ll be here in no time.
Here are the four must see places in Bangalore that you must visit:
Let’s start with a place that has gained fame across the nation- Lal Bagh. Apart from being a huge garden in the centre of the city, Lal Bagh also plays host to various events such as the flower show. The garden is historic as it was commissioned in 1760 by Hyder Ali and completed by Tipu Sultan. When in the garden, be sure to catch a glimpse of the Glass House.
- 2. Bangalore Palace
Built in a British style and decorated with ivy, the Bangalore Palace is the city’s pride. Currently owned by the Mysore royal family, the palace has housed various royals and dignitaries. The grounds of the palace, called Palace Grounds, has hosted some of the coolest concerts in recent history. From Iron Maiden and Sting to Roger Waters and Elton John, this place is the centre of any music lovers plans.
The Flower Market of Bangalore
If you are looking for those photos that’ll turn your Instagram buddies green with envy, then head to the Flower Market in KR Market. You will be overwhelmed by the colours and the sheer number of flowers available. This one is for the early risers as it is open from 2 AM to 8 AM. It’s a great place to support local farmers as you can buy flowers directly from them.
