Bangalore’s greatest landmarks are undoubtedly its incredible architectural masterpieces. There’s the 45,000-square-foot Tudor-style Bangalore Palace, which the Maharaja of Mysore bought from the British and which the royal family still owns. Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace, built in a different Indo-Islamic style, belonged to the Mysorean ruler and national hero. Attara Kacheri, with its eye-catching red color, is hard to miss and its European classical building is now used for the High Court. Finally, Bangalore’s architectural pièce de résistance is the Vidhana Soudha, home of the state legislature and an icon of Dravidian architecture. To see works by India’s most famous artists, pay a visit to the National Gallery of Modern Art. And make sure to take a stroll around Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath, a beautiful 18-gallery complex in the center of the city.
