What To Expect
Fall in love with the cosmopolitan city of Bangalore as you trace the history of its colonial past, tour through its forts and well laid gardens, clean roads, boulevards, wonderful cinemas and shopping complexes.
Our first stop is ISKCON Temple, a neo-classical style temple that's a happy blend of tradition and modernity. It offers a truly commendable experience to visitors and devotees from a spiritual, architectural and general perspective.
Next, we'll proceed to Tipu's Palace, a two-storey palace built entirely of teakwood that has been converted into a museum. It houses exquisitely carved pillars, arches and balconies.
Head over to the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, home to over a thousand species of plants. Here, you'll also find a glass house inspired by the Crystal Palace of England that was built to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales.
We'll have lunch at a local restaurant before proceeding for a visit to Bangalore Palace*, which was built by Rev. Garrett, the first principal of the Central High School in the city that is now known as Central College. Next, we'll drive past High Court, Cubbon Park, and Vidhan Sabha to take a look at the magnificent buildings.
Afterwards, we'll visit the oldest Bull Temple, a fine example of the Dravidian-style architecture. It is said that the temple is dedicated to a sacred Hindu demi-god, Nandi who was a close devotee and attendant of Shiva. Finally we'll visit Gavi Gangadhareswara Temple that was dedicated to Lord Shiva and houses a unique image of Agni the God of Fire, before heading back to your hotel.
