Looking for a place that’s chill and convenient at the same time? Check out our residences in Bangalore

Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace

This palace is one of the grandest historical places in Bangalore. And when you visit this place, it’s like entering a lavish Disney Land set. You know, without actually spending a fortune to get to an actual one. 

Bangalore Fort

Bangalore fort was built by Haider Ali in 1761. And most parts of the fort haven’t stood the test of time. But if your mood is low for whatever reason, you can go for a solitary walk in the scenic complex. Funny how something in such a broken-down state can so easily lift your mood, no?

Bangalore Palace

This is one of the most famous monuments in Bangalore. Also, when you’re done and dusted with all your Netflix suggestions, you can spend an evening there for a rock concert. Coz after a hectic week, you ought to bang your head for all the right reasons!

Devanahalli Fort Bangalore- Hyderabad Highway

This is one of the historical places near Bangalore that calls for a long drive. We mean, a lovely long drive with your partner. But when you reach the fort, don’t write your lover’s name on the walls. Like it’s romantic (maybe) but quite irresponsible. Got it?

St Mary’s Basilica

For heavy metal fans (we know there are a lot in Bangalore), the place has just got the right vibe with the Gothic-style architecture. Moreover, it’s one of the oldest churches in the region. So it might help feed your old soul as well. 

Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium

The clear Bangalore sky is always great for stargazing. But you can take it up a notch and explore deep space in the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium. The audio-visual experience is simply out of this world. And given the city is also the center of Indian space exploration, we’re not surprised. 

Lal Bagh

Lal Bagh is a botanical garden that gets its name from the abundant roses found there. And wherever there are roses, you’ll also find plenty of Romeos or Juliet’s nearby (but give them some privacy, okay?).

Vidhana Soudha

The Vidhana Soudha is Karnataka’s seat of the state legislature. You can spend your time exploring one of the most famous monuments of Bangalore. But yeah, you need to get prior permission to visit. You just can’t casually enter the gates. 

Attara Kechari

Attara Kechari is an age-old building that currently houses the High court of Bengaluru. And don’t worry, you don’t have to do something illegal to visit the place. Just talk to the guard and enter. 

Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall

This one is for the history buffs. And fun fact – the Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall houses around 2,65,000 books. Which almost touches the number of pages you xeroxed during college. Right?

Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple

Gavi Gangadhareshwara temple is one of the famous monuments in Bangalore. And parts of the temple architecture have astrological elements which are still an unsolved mystery. Probably even a greater mystery as to why you can’t wake up before 2 PM. Even on weekdays.

Venkatappa Art Gallery

This art gallery is the best cocktail of history and art. It features some of the most celebrated Indian artists and houses artworks that date back to the stone age. Remember ‘The Flintstones’ on Cartoon Network? Yup, those days. 

Bugle Rock Park

The Bugle Rock Park houses a lot of, well, rocks. And some of them are about 3000 million years old. So visiting this park is kinda like time travel, don’t you think?

Government Museum

The Government museum houses extensive sections of natural history, architecture and sculpture. Speaking of sculptures, your bestie glued to their phone screen might pass off as one. So do keep a check on them when you’re visiting this place, okay?

Hal Aerospace Museum

Hal Aerospace Museum documents the legacy of aviation in India. You can witness aircrafts models like KIRAN and MIG 21 here. We’re telling you, this will be an exciting experience for you. Or as we like to call it – a HAL-lucinating experience. Okay, last PJ. Promise.
