You could spend all day visiting Bengaluru’s gorgeous temples and churches. Just two to add to your list are the Bull Temple located in Basavanagudi—when you see the huge statue of a bull, you’re there—and St. Mary’s Basilica, the oldest church in Bangalore. If you’ve got an eye for classic architecture, take your peepers over to the Vidhana Soudha, the legislative House of the State of Karnatake, and its neighbour, the Vikasa Soudha. Bring the camera!
All the energy of Bengaluru’s eight million residents can lift you up, but sometimes you need to get away too. The city takes care to maintain its green spaces and offers great outdoor activities. Hike along the tails in the Nandi Hills or Kumara Parvatha, or spelunk to your heart’s desire in Savandurga or Anthargange.
When it’s time to eat, you’ll find plenty of dosasa, vadas and curd rice to fill your tummy in this burgeoning foodie scene. Curious about the nightlife? Follow the beat to the commercial business district where India’s army of IT warriors “unplug” after-hours in the local bars and pubs.
Arrive at busy Kempegowda International Airport (BLR), and take an airport taxi roughly 40 km to most Bengaluru hotels. Consider using the well-developed public bus system when traveling in the city. For short distance travel, a three-wheeled auto-rickshaw can be a fun adventure.
