Bangalore Guide

What are the best things to do in Bangalore?

Bangalore Palace

This extraordinary royal palace is one of the top things to see while visiting India on flights to Bangalore. It was built for King Chamaraja Wadiyar in the 1880s based on Tudor style designs. The exterior of the palace would fit right into the English countryside, but the interior follows a more traditional Indian style and the ornate tilework and patterned walls add to the luxurious feel. Pay a visit to the palace while holidaying on return flights to Bangalore to take in its fortified towers, manicured gardens, grand ballroom, and collection of Indian artwork.

Lalbagh Botanical Garden

Get a taste of South Indian nature by visiting the Lalbagh Botanical Garden in between your return flights to Bangalore. The gardens were first built in 1760, and are home to the largest collection of tropical plants in India. The Glass Door is the main landmark within the Lalbagh Botanical Garden. This greenhouse was inspired by London’s Crystal Palace and houses a beautiful collection of flowers. Other things to look for while walking around the gardens include Lotus Lake, a variety of native bird species who live there, and Peninsular Gneiss Rock, which is one of the oldest rocks in the world.

Bangalore Fort

Bangalore is quickly modernising, but there’s also some fascinating history to learn about while holidaying on flights to Bangalore. The Fort was built in 1537 during the reign of Kempe Gowda. It became the residence of emperor Tipu Sultan in the late 1700s, and he transformed the Fort into what it is today. Bangalore Fort was originally used as a summer home for the emperor, but later played a part in the resistance against the British East India Company in the late 1700s. Today, tourists holidaying on cheap flights to Bangalore can visit the Fort to learn about its role in local history. Admire its architecture, view the Lord Ganesha Temple, and look through the royal artefacts at the fort’s museum.
