Bangalore Palace- Amazing Beauty to Behold From a Bygone Period

Hailing from a city of culture and tradition like Jaipur, Rajasthan I have a keen interest in the glorious history of India and its traditional places and rituals. India has a lot to offer to the travellers who have a thirst to unveil the unknown. People who wish to discover what lies beneath the surface of this wonderful nation would find Bangalore to be a perfect starting point as the city houses several tourist attractions like palaces, temples, museums, etc.

One of the best things about Bangalore is its splendid array of eateries that could offer the visitors a taste of the local delicacies. But if you go for touring the city, then Bangalore Palace is a must visit sight. And as a lover of old cities, forts, historic monuments I could not afford to miss the opportunity to behold this mesmerising beauty.

Located at the very heart of the city, the Bangalore Palace is no doubt, one of the unique historic buildings that anyone can come across. Built in a Tudor style in 1887, this palace cost a huge amount of money at that time which is clearly visible from this lavish monument. It will surely remind you of the Windsor Castle of United Kingdom, if you have witnessed it in real or in picture.

The palace is built in a grand scale consisting of several rooms and halls. The ground floor has an open courtyard with granite seats covered with coloured tiles. There was a ballroom built for conducting private parties. The large durbar hall on the second floor can be reached through a decorated staircase.

The interior of the palace contains profuse use of yellow colour that can be seen on the walls and sofa. The extensive ground circling the palace hosts many public events including several musical concerts by even international artists. The Fun World that is an amusement park in the palace ground complex is an exciting place to be in for both kids and adults. Similar grandeur of architecture can be noticed in Vidhana Soudha Bangalore and both the places share a common thread that is they both have been the seats for the administrative decisions.

About Author :

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
