Your exploration of its rich range of colonial sites, ornate temples and fascinating landmarks is sure to delight.
Start your trip in the morning with a pickup from your Bangalore hotel. From there you’ll head to the neo-classical styled ISKCON temple before continuing on to the ornate teak-covered Tipu Sultan’s Palace. This historic two-story royal home was recently converted into museum, offering unique insight into Bangalore history.
Contrast your trip back in time by admiring the lush Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, a facility that houses more than 1,000 unique flora. An on-site Crystal Palace, modeled the famous English structure, was built to celebrate a visit by the Prince of Wales. After digging into a tasty buffet lunch, you’ll get to admire the city’s iconic Bangalore Palace. While government rules prevent you from entering inside, the exterior itself is worth a look.
Proceed next to the area where many of Bangalore’s government buildings reside, taking a look at the Vidhan Sabha, (Legislative Assembly) High Court and Cubbon Park. Finish your day by learning about Hindu deities at the Bull Temple, an elaborate religious site built in the Dravidian style into the surrounding rocks. You’ll receive a drop-off back at your hotel at the end of the day.
