About Bengaluru

Located in Karnataka state and in the middle of southern India, Bengaluru is the hub of the country’s IT and technology industries. It is also famed for a number of historic buildings, beautiful parks and nightlife options rated as some of the best in the country. Bannerghatta National Park, exciting theme parks and a technology museum are other wonderful Bengaluru visitor highlights.

Don’t Miss

The ancient walls of Bangalore Fort enclose the late 18th century Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. The joint attraction is an unmissable Bengaluru destination. Bangalore Palace is built in the style of the UK’s Winsor Castle, while the state government building, Vidhana Soudha, is a fantastic sight.

Lalbagh Botanical Gardens boast a huge greenhouse, the biggest selection of hot-country plants in the nation and a lake. The gardens are also home to birds like purple moorhens and mynahs. The grounds of Bangalore Palace are nicely laid out and host the Fun World amusement park. Wonderla Amusement Park is to the south of Bengaluru and is packed with 60 water and dry land rides.

When it comes to fun for all, the nearby Bannerghatta National Park is ideal as it features a zoo, hiking trails, a safari park and an aquarium among its draws. Visvesvaraya Museum in Cubbon Park houses everything from early technology devices to trains and aeroplanes.

Restaurants and Bars

Food in Bengaluru is diverse and covers all choices from local udupi vegetarian dishes to North India specials, Chinese cooking and US style burgers. Suggested udupi dishes are spicy rice and rasam curry. Thindi Beedi, or Food Street, is the best location to sample snacks like dosa, bhaji and roti with curry mix. Choosing a venue for a night out is not difficult with Jimi's Beer Cafe, the Night Queen pub and Soho Bar and Grill among popular choices.

Shopping

Shopping opportunities in Bengaluru are varied, with everything from traditional Indian bazaars to modern malls available. Commercial Street is a favourite with tourists and offers a market atmosphere with vendors selling colourful clothes, jewellery, antiques and accessories for mobile telephones. The Forum and Garuda are two of the larger shopping malls in the city and have outlets for international brands such as Marks & Spencer, Nike and Jimmy Choo.
