The Garden City is ever charming, be it the city life, historical monuments, gardens, palaces, Bangalore is vibrant! After visiting the Iskcon temple, we made our way to Bangalore Palace. It was nearly 7km away and took about 25 minutes for us to get there. The ‘wow!’ feeling was running through my mind! What an amazing architecture! It is a blend of traditional and western style of architecture. It was a very vast area, which was spread across 450 acres. The magnificent place was inviting! We arrived at the main entrance, elegant work on the doors; walls and ceiling were all a masterpiece!
We began to see and enjoy the beauty of the place and the interior decoration. The ground floor had seats decorated with blue tiles. A spacious ballroom in the ground floor is a perfect place to host parties, marriage receptions and so on. Beautifully decorated staircase leads to the first floor. We climbed the stairs and reached the spacious Durbar Hall. It was a hall where the king used to address his ministers. The walls of the hall had a number of huge paintings done by renowned artists of the ancient era. It not only included Indians but also the foreign artists. Lot of family discussions were going on between us about the royal life of those times!
Bangalore Palace grounds are used for conducting mega events like music concerts, exhibitions and so on. Lush green surroundings of the palace are alluring. Many popular musicians and singers have performed at the palace grounds. Another interesting feature of the palace is Fun World, an amusement park in the palace grounds. As we moved towards the park we saw a number of families, especially kids were enjoying the rides. A clean and well-maintained park offers a number of rides to entertain the kids. We spend about an hour there and it was time to leave, as there are time restrictions. It was yet another day full of activities!
We returned to the hotel exhausted. We planned to have in-room dinner.We placed an order for some light traditional food and our discussions were on for the next day’s activities…
