When to go
Curated for you
Bangalore has numerous nicknames, including the ‘Garden city of India’. According to tradition, the city owes this name to Krishna Raja Wodeyar, the 24th maharaja of the Kingdom of Mysore. In celebration of his silver anniversary, he embellished Bangalore with lavish gardens, parks and lakes. Since then, strolling and recreating in the local greenery has been a favourite pastime of residents.
In an attempt to be shack off its colonial past, Bangalore was given back its former name of Bengaluru, which means ‘City of Boiled Beans’, in 2014. But the old part of the city is a top attraction due to its heritage from the time of British rule in India. The royal palace, for instance, suspiciously resembles Windsor Castle and the cathedral is a copy of the famous St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.
