Bangalore Palace: Windsor Castle in our own backyard
Lined with exquisite paintings and woodwork, this palace has 35 rooms. One striking picture one can see of a lady appearing sad from one angle and happy from the other. Also kept on display are some memoirs made out of animal parts like a table made out of elephant legs, and pictures showcasing the capture of elephant tuskers can be seen. Also there is a huge ballroom which is rented out for parties and functions. The outside garden is perfect for a leisurely stroll and gives a great feeling roaming around the park.
Entry: The palace is open for public for a fee of Rs 175 for Indian nationals and Rs 350 for Foreign Nationals. Camera charges are Rs 500 for still and Rs 1000 for video photography. Though the rates can be negotiated if its a big group and tickets are bought in bulk.

Yes...this is very nice...I had visited this placeReplyDelete
I haven't been to the Bangalore Palace yet, although we've been in the city for 4 years. I guess I'd now like to visit, after seeing your pictures. I really liked the passageway. Just yesterday, we explored the Fraser town - Benson town part of Bangalore and saw some beautiful old houses there.ReplyDelete
