The Colonial history of Bengaluru takes you to approximately 150 years back when the British made this region of India as their administrative base. The St Mark’s Cathedral Church, The Attara Kacheri in Cubbon Park, Tipu Sultan Summer Palace & The K R Market which is one of the biggest flower market’s in Asia are some of the Colonial structures that will take you back in the history of this beautiful City.
The architectural heritage of Bengaluru includes the two must visit places i.e., The Vidhana Soudha, the largest Legislative building in India made in a Neo Dravidian style, The Bangalore Palace is inspired by The Windsor Castle in London.
