Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain

Opp to Jawahar Lal Nehru Planetarium, Raj Bhawan Road, Bangalore, India, 560052

The Basics

Although the Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain is one of the lesser-known attractions in Bengaluru, it's worth a visit not only for its fantastic sound, light, and water show, but also for the people-watching—not to mention the unmatched cultural experience of listening to patriotic songs with hundreds of Indian guests. The fountain can make 15 formations using 27 different rhythmic combinations, so even if you’ve watched videos prior to your visit, you’ll likely be in for a surprise.

How To Get There

Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain is located across from the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium, a few minutes' walk northeast of Cubbon Park (where the closest metro station is situated). It's northeast of the main Bengaluru Railway Station, and while getting between the two usually only takes around 10 minutes, it can take significantly longer during the evening rush, so give yourself plenty of time.

When To Get There

Shows are held every day of the week (except for Monday) at 7 and 8pm, and the fountain is the most crowded on weekends. As it's an outdoor attraction, it's best visited outside of the rainy season, which starts in May and runs through October. On the other hand, if you don’t mind getting wet, the fountain still looks marvelous under rainfall.

Indira Gandhi

The fountain was named after Indira Gandhi, India’s first (and only) female prime minister, who was in office when the fountain was constructed. A member of the Indian National Congress Party, she was the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first and longest-serving prime minister, and she served twice, first in 1966–1977 and again from 1980 until her assassination in 1984.
