Museums of Bangalore: Indian Musical Experience

Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children.

Kailasa Temple Ellora: An architectural marvel

Overview: I was wonderstruck when I saw the majestic Kailasa temple at Ellora. This structure has been carved out of a single hillock using some ancient technology which is unimaginable today.
Though the inscriptions reveal that the temple was used during the period of Rashtrakutas in the 8th century, the monument itself might have been initially built much earlier. The entrance to the temple leads us to two symmetric gigantic pillars, beautifully carved to precision. On the outer boundary of the temple, pillared caves are built with carved stories from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, each carving being atleast 10 feet high. The interior of the temples are no less fascinating, which can be reached by climbing a series of steps on to the first floor. The huge hall with intricate carvings leads to the Shiva linga, which is the main deity of the temple. Both inner and outer walls of the temples are beautifully decorated with carvings. Of all the monuments in India, this temple would definitely rank amongst the 'must-sees'.

Accomodation: Several options for accommodation are available at Aurangabad for all budgets.
