Vidhana Soudha is one of the best stone building in India and it is a proud place for karnatakans. The building houses the Assembly and this is the place where assembly sessions are carried on. During the sessions only people with passes are allowed to attend the sessions. But one can enjoy the beauty of the building from outside. Attara... More

You can see them only from outside and trough the fence. Traffic around is very heavy so your drive just drops you and makes a circle around to give you time for some look. But there is not much to see through the fence. Still impressive buildings.

Vidhana Soudha, the seat of the Legislature, an imposing building in the neo Dravidian is one place to visit. It is Sunday and the place was close so we were not able to enter inside. But the overall structure, history and purpose of the building and its function is worth seeing. You can learn them by walking around and reading... More

Nowadays Metro work is in progress in front of Vidhan Soudha. It is informed that one can go inside with proper pass. I missed the opportunity as I happened to go on a sunday. From the view it is just like a Mysore Royal construction. Once Metro work completes I am sure it would be treat to watch the place.

Vidhyanath Soudha is the legislative assembly of the state. It was conceived and built on the lines of magnificent structures on Europe. Painted white and off white it is imposing and majestic. For those if you lucky enough to get inside the main hall, it is a very handsome hall. Vikasa Soudha next to it is an imitation wannabe. The... More

One of the best monuments which I visited, in boyhood days and later, is Vidhanasoudha and the slogan''Goverment work is god's work'' on it's facade always pop up in mind mind whenever I interact with the Government machinery.

It is an imposing building, constructed in a style sometimes described as Mysore Neo-Dravidian, and incorporates elements of Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian styles. Awesome construction. Its in heart of city. Around it we have high court, Cubbon Park and Central Library.
