History
Now the capital of Karnataka state, Bangalore was founded by Kempegowda in the early 16th century and became an important fortress city under Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan two centuries later, though little remains from this period except the Lalbagh Botanical Garden.

Vidhana Soudha
Located at the North-west end of Cubbon Park, this is one of Bangalore’s, and indeed one of India’s, most spectacular buildings. Built in 1954, it is constructed of granite in the neo-Dravidian style of architecture and houses both the Secretariat and the State Legislature. The Cabinet room is famous for its massive door made of pure sandalwood. The building is floodlit on Sunday evenings and on public holidays; however, it is not open to the public.

Cubbon Park & Museums
One of the main ‘lungs’ of the city, this beautiful shady park, full of flowering trees, covers120 hectares and was laid out in 1864. In it are the red Gothic buildings which house the Public Library, the High Court, the Government Museum and the Technological & Industrial Museum. Also in the gardens is a huge Children’s park where, in a reversal of the usual roles, adults are not allowed in unless accompanied by children.Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Bangalore Travel Vacations

The Government Museum, one of the oldest in India, was established in 1886 and houses collections on geology, art, numismatics and relics, from Mohenjodaro (one of the cradles of Indian civilization, dating back 5000 years). There are also some good pieces form Halebid and Vijayanagar.
The Technological & Industrial Museum, also on Kasturba Rd, is adjacent to the Government Museum.

Lalbagh Botanical Gardens
This beautiful and popular park in the southern suburbs of Bangalore covers 96 hectares and was laid out in the 18th century by Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan. It contains many centuries-old trees (most of them labelled), lakes, lotus ponds, flower beds and one of India’s largest collections of rare tropical and subtropical plants. Refreshment is available within the park, and selected seeds and plants are sold here each morning.

Fort
Located close to the City Market, this was originally a mud-brick structure built in 1537 by Kempegowda. In the 18th century it was rebuilt in stone by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan, but much of it was destroyed during the wars with the British.

Tipu Sultan’s Palace
This wooden palace, south-west of the City Market, was begun by Tipu Sultan’s father, Hyder Ali, and completed by Tipu in 1791. It resembles the Daria Daulat Bagh at Srirangapatnam near Mysore, but has been sadly neglected and is falling into disrepair. You may find the temple next to it of greater interest.

Bull Temple
Situated on Bugle Hill at the end of Bull Temple Rd, this is one of Bangalore’s oldest temple. Built by Kempegowda in the Dravidian style in the 16th century, it contains a huge monolith of Nandi similar to the one on Chamundi Hill, Mysore. Non –Hindus are allowed to enter and the priests are friendly.

Other Attractions
The remains of the four Watchtowers built by Kempegowda are about 400 metres west of the Bull Temple and worth a visit if you’re in the area. Ulsoor Lake, north –east of Cubbon Park, has boating facilities and a dirty swimming pool.
