About Bangalore Palace in Bangalore

An embodiment of superb architecture, Bangalore Palace preserves in it the flavor of imperial splendor. Magnetizing tourists from far and wide, the Palace in Bangalore was built in 1878. The palace is extraordinarily vast and spread across 45,000 square feet, surrounded by lush green gardens. The Bangalore Palace history states that palace the area was purchased in 1873 by the guardians of Chamaraja Wadiyar and construction began in 1874 with Windsor Castle in his mind. John Cameron landscaped the palace and surrounding areas. Initial construction was completed in 1878 and successive additions and renovations have been carried out since.

The Bangalore Palace interior is impressive beyond imagination. Magnificently decorated with intricate wood carvings, floral motifs, cornices, gothic windows, and frescos, the palace has 35 rooms with a manual lift, and is a lovely place to visit. The ceiling is ornamented with relief paintings. In the courtyard of this palace in Bangalore, the granite seats are decorated with fluorescent blue ceramic tiles. A ballroom that seems right from a fairy tale, famous painter Raja Ravi Varma's paintings, vine-covered walls, and the Durbar Hall on the first floor form the prepossessing Bangalore Palace. From the turrets, visitors can easily catch the view of Tudor-style architecture. Battlements on the fortified towers adds to the charm. Edwardian, Victorian, and neo-classical styles are easily visible on the furniture.

Apart from being a major tourist destination, the palace ground of Bangalore is a host to different cultural events, exhibitions, concerts, and marriages. Sheesh Mahal is one of the largest and the most luxurious wedding halls of the palace. On special occasions, dandiya in Bangalore Palace ground is also organized that draws several people to shake a leg in these royal expanses. Bangalore Palace has also been used as a backdrop for shooting of several Bollywood and regional movies.
