EXPERIENCES

Bangalore Palace

Explore this interesting structure, which almost seems out of place in the Indian countryside. Constructed by a Christian reverend, the palace was later bought by the royal family of Mysore as a residence. Built in the Tudor style, the Palace features elaborate arches, castle-like walls and turrets, and a series of grounds modeled after an English country estate.

Dining Out

Eating out is a large part of the local culture and visitors should be sure to sample Bangalore’s culinary delights. Popular eateries include udupi (or udipi) restaurants, which serve a flavorful vegetarian south Indian cuisine. Traditional Bangalorean cuisine, meanwhile, blends northern, meat-based Mughlai fare with Hyderabadi rice dishes, biryanis.

Dodda Basavana Gudi

Located in southern Bangalore, Dodda Basavana Gudi is a temple is devoted to Nandi, a sacred Hindu demi-god who often takes the form of a bull. The temple entrance features a multi-tiered, ornately carved gate, while within the temple is a giant Nandi murthi, or religious figurine, which measures about 15 feet (4.6 meters). Interestingly, one religious rite involves devotees covering the statue of Nandi with butter.

Lal Bagh

Visit the Lal Bagh, or Red Gardens, one of the foremost botanic gardens in Bangalore, a city known for its extensive greenery and immaculate horticulture. Enter the park through one of its four gates and stroll leisurely through its grounds, enjoying the varied plant life, diverse structures, and picturesque lake.

Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace

Visit the Summer Palace of Tipu Sultan, known as the Tiger of Mysore for his resistance to British colonial rule. Adjacent to the city market, the Summer Palace was constructed entirely from rosewood; within its walls stand a museum commemorating the legacy of this remarkable ruler, as well as the tombs of both Tipu Sultan and his father, Hyder Ali.
