Bangalore Travel Guide: 635 reviews and 994 photos

In India, Bangalore is known as the Garden City. I can see why. It is a very green city with many parks and grassy areas. Located at a height of 1,000 metre above sea level, the tempreature here is very pleasant. Bangalore is the capital city of Karnataka state.

We were here as part of a tour of Southern India. The trip was arranged by Simon Bazely through his company Choomti. We were incredibly pleased with his oranisation and the running of the tour was smooth from start to finish. I can wholeheartedly recommend his ervices to anyone who is wanting to make arrangements for their India trip in advance.

    Good that you enjoyed your train experience. We just love train journeys in India. The Lalbagh Botanical Gardens look lovely- and the architecture of the Taj West really appeals to me. Nice page.

    Bangalore looks quite pleasant - I seem to find myself talking to people in call centres there! :))
