Cubbon Park

This is a very important landmark of Bangalore and is named after Sir Mark Cubbon, who served as the governor of Mysore for the longest period. Later in the 19th century, this park was named as Raja Chamarajendra Park, after the king of Mysore. The more popular name is still Cubbon Park as it is easier to pronounce. There are over 6000 species of plants here including some very rare ones. The Silver Oak planted here was the first kind of Oak ever introduced here and was brought down from Australia. The Statues of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Edward II are also erected over here. This park is a favorite of morning and evening walkers, nature lovers and children especially.

We all know that Bangalore is an IT capital city with huge buildings, but did you ever know that it is also the home for the second oldest museum in South India. Yess, now you can also visit one of the oldest museums in India known as the Government Museum which is located next to Cubbon park, MG Road. If you are fond of archaeological items such as stone carvings, coins, inscriptions, artifact's and paintings then this is the best place for you to visit. This museum also holds a record of showcasing the first inscription of kannada  - the Halmidi Inscription slabs.While walking inside the museum it will take you to another world. Paintings displayed at Venkatappa art gallery were really adorable. Each painting expresses different kinds of emotions. Observer can immerse in the painting and can easily understand the thoughts of the artist and what he was trying to convey to the public through the portraits.On the first floor of the art gallery, I came across a wooden idol section exhibited by Major C P Rajaram. He says that, "The beauty of wood is in its shape,its irregular grain, color and texture. In the grain of wood one can imagine a picture and in its shape a movement common in everyday life". And you can literally see his art and what he meant through the wooden idols.Entry 20rs for adults and 10 rs for Children Parking facilities are also available near the museum. So, this is the perfect place to spend some time when you are around Bangalore peacefully without any disturbance of vehicles. "The more art you see, the more you will learn to define your taste". "Keep traveling and explore new things always".

Had breakfast and visited the Cubbon Park, a vast heritage of trees with pure oxygen and greenery all around. It was at the heart of the city and so huge that it would take more than an hour just to walk around the park. You see a lot of people visiting for morning exercise/walk and there is no entry ticket for anyone. Spent a good 2 hours time there under the trees and also clicking some pictures.

9. Cubbon ParkThis is another prized jewel for the Garden City. Drop dead in the center of the city, within walking distance of its administrative center is this calm expanse of greenery. This park is 300 acres of local and exotic plants, chirping birds, winding footpaths and a variety of historical landmarks. The perfect space for a breath of fresh air.
