Bengaluru (bangalore) Travel Guide

The capital city of the southern Indian state of Karnataka, Bengaluru, or Bangalore as it was earlier called is one of India’s most vibrant and modern cities. Spearheading in India all things ‘21st century’, Bengaluru is abuzz with energy, all about enthusiasm and really quite groovy in a tech miracle-big business school-arts and theatre kind of way.

Bangalore enjoys a salubrious climate throughout the year and earned the nickname of 'air-conditioned city' with good reason. In recent years the IT boom has over taken the city and though it has expanded - it hasn't been rapid enough, with the result that the roads are quite congested and traffic jams common. But don't let that deter you as there are pockets of wide roads, tree-lined avenues and lovely parks and gardens that make up the green lungs of the city.

Bangalore has a certain liveliness, a certain vitality that one cannot ignore - so come to the city and let the enthusiasm rub off on you!

As the story goes Bangalore was named after an old woman who served a wandering king a meal of boiled beans. There's little chance now of finding boiled beans anywhere in Bangalore, the mecca of IT in India!
