A Perfect Day Trip to Bangalore Palace
Travel is an experience and learning. The more you travel you will learn more new things and know new people. I understand the fact that every month you can’t afford such a big-budget traveling experience but you can at least afford a short tour within your city. Today, I am writing about Bangalore Palace, a place where Bangaloreans or people who come to Bangalore for business can easily visit.
Bangalore Palace is situated in the central part of the Garden City, the area called Vasanth Nagar. The palace was actually owned by Rev. J. Garrett. Later, the British officials bought the palace from Garrett in 1873 to train minor Maharaja Chamarajendra Wadiyar -X to take over the region in 1881. Interestingly, they bought the 45,000 S.ft. Palace at a cost of Rs. 40,000, which was taken from the fund of the young king.
The outer look of the palace is very nice, which decorated with a special plant. To take permission for entry you have to buy a ticket. The rate of the ticket is pretty affordable, but the rate is a little higher for foreign citizens. If you want to take a camera inside the palace, you have to pay for the same.
Inside the palace, you can see old pictures with descriptions, beautiful royal dresses, and furniture. There is a sitting place in the middle part of the palace, which is designed with colorful stones and those stones were imported from Spain and other European countries. I believe that is the most beautiful area of the palace. When you will come out of the building, you will see old Kamans and a beautiful royal flower garden.
It takes maximum of 4 hours to visit the palace, which is very nice for a day trip. I will suggest you visit the palace in the afternoon as that time is perfect to enjoy the beauty of this historic palace.
