Here’s more on all that there is to do and visit on a trip to Bangalore which travellers usually prefer in a Bangalore tour package.

Bangalore Palace: A palace inspired by the Windsor Castle, the Bangalore Palace is the city’s most prominent landmarks. Pristine Gothic style stained glass windows, ornate carvings, turreted parapets, fortified towers and Victorian style furniture enhance the grandeur of this palace.

Along with the most exotic flowers, people can get different kinds of utensils, food stalls, and tons of other interesting things here that they can even carry back as keepsakes.

Bull Temple: This sixteenth-century Dravidian style temple is the most popular religious site in the city. The grand idol of Nandi situated here is carved out of single granite rock and is always adorned with flowers.
