Describing It

A city that boasts of an interesting mix of well-planned infrastructure and scenic landscapes; Bangalore, now known as Bengaluru, is the capital of Karnataka. A bustling IT hub, this vibrant city is known by many names - Silicon Valley of India, Garden City, Pub City and the Pensioner’s Paradise are just some of them. Call it what you may, Bangalore is a city sure to enthrall you with its multifaceted charm.

Bangalore undeniably woos the ardent traveller with a host of tourist attractions coupled with year-round pleasant climate. In spite of heavy industrialisation, the city has kept its heritage in perfect harmony with the evolving modernity. There are picturesque palaces, gardens, parks and boulevards in all parts of the city.

There is plenty to see and do within Bangalore itself, and it also serves as a good base to explore nearby tourist destinations like Koli Hills, Kalpetta, Bheemeshwari and Kabini.

Bangalore balances the old and the new in an incredibly good manner. As multinationals aim for the sky with spiralling workplaces all around Bangalore, some of the most beautiful gardens in the country and a monumental palace, which was once the summer retreat of the great warrior Tipu Sultan, adorn the city and add to the cultural heritage. Bangalore is also famous for its youthful vibe and pub culture. From interesting historical structures to the most modernistic lifestyle, Bangalore is fascinating, to say the least.
