Bangalore Palace

This palace is the Palace Gardens located in the heart of the city was constructed in 1887 by the Wodeyar Dynasty. The look of the palace is just like one of those medieval castles of England. It is said that this Tudor style palace was inspired from the Windsor Castle of England. The design and beauty of the Windsor Castle is said to have impressed Raja Chamarajendra Wodeyar so much that he decided to make this palace. The palace, though it has lost much of its previous grandeur, still manages to stand stunning. The garden and lawn around the palace is well maintained and the castle is now used for exhibitions and large cultural programs. As you enter the palace, it is the ballroom of the king and on the first floor is the assembly halls. The walls are intricately decorated and Yellow seems to have been a favorite of the king. There are ornate walls and also a place with a veil where the ladies used to sit while the assembly was in progress. The castle is mainly carved in wood and the paintings of Raja Ravi Verma, a court artist adorns many of the walls here.

2. Bangalore PalaceA remnant of Bangalore's royal heritage, the Bangalore Palace, also known as “Maharaja’s Palace” is another must-see. Surrounded by lush and extensive grounds, the palace itself bears a striking resemblance to the famous Windsor Castle. Not to be outdone, the interiors of the palace look just as rich and luxurious. For a nominal fee, you can also receive a guided tour of the splendor of this palace and a glimpse into the old royal lifestyle of the Wadiyar Dynasty.

This place is epitome of great architecture and beauty which is popularly known as the Majestic Bangalore Palace which preserves in it the spice of old regal opulence. But guys currently the central attraction in Bangalore, the palace was built in the year 1878.Guys this time we are in Bangalore & decided firstly to visit this place so we booked cab directly to this place from our hotel. We were completely astonished by the extraordinarily vast and spread across 45,000 square feet. This place is a mixture of Tudor and Scottish Gothic architecture have resulted into the grand palace that we see today.The wooden structure of the palace along with the beautiful carvings both inside and outside showcases the royal culture in different ways.Heading towards this place we also came to explore like this palace is a host to different cultural events, rock shows, and marriages. As per beliefs, King Chamarajendra Wadiyar drew his inspiration for building the palace from the Windsor Castle of London. Even the granite seats decorated with fluorescent blue ceramic tiles on the ground floor, a fairy tale Ballroom, the famous painter Raja Ravi Varma's paintings, vine-covered walls, and the Durbar Hall on the first floor come together to form the prepossessing Bangalore Palace. Even an audio tape is available inside the Palace, both in Hindi and English, to help the people having language issues, understand its history better.Guys my personal opinion is that its a must visit to the palace which gives us a chance to witness the elegant and lavish splendour of one of the most powerful dynasties of South India.
