A perfect day trip to Bangalore Palace
Travel is an experience and learning. 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 big budget travelling experience but you can at least afford a short tour within your city. Today, I am writing about Bangalore Palace, a place where Bangalorians or people who come to Bangalore for business can easily visit.
Bangalore Palace is situated in 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 Sft. Palace at a coast of Rs. 40,000, which was taken from the fund of young king.
The outer look of the palace is very nice, which decorated with a special plant. To take the permission for entry you have to buy ticket. The rate of the ticket is pretty affordable but the rate is little higher for foreign citizens. If you want to take 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 at the middle part for the palace, which is designed by colourful 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 from the building, you will see old Kamans and a beautiful royal flower garden.
It takes maximum 4 hours to visit the palace, which is very nice for a day trip. I will suggest you to visit the palace at afternoon as that time is perfect to enjoy the beauty of this historic palace.
