The Neo-Dravidian-style Vidhana Soudha is the seat of the state legislature while the red Attara Kacheri houses the High Court. In 2005, an annex called the Vikas Soudha was inaugurated, designed as an exact replica of the Vidhana Soudha. Though these buildings cannot be visited, they can be viewed from the outside.

The old charm of the Vidhana Soudha is missing . Maybei ts all that construction activity going on. The fencing in the front wasn't there when I last visited in the 90s's

Vidhana Soudha and Attara Kacheri are located in a centrally located near Cubbon Park.Any first time visitor to Bangalore has to visit these marvels and admire the engineers who built it.Kengal Hanumanthaiah built the Vidhana Soudha but was not lucky enough to sit as Chief minister.The security is tight and to visit Vidhana Soudha visitor passes have to be obtained.

Vidhana Soudha is an architectural marvel and I was so fascinated by its beauty, elegance and the size, could not remove my eyes from the sight. Granite stone construction and its dome are worth watching. I had to take a long walk on the road to view the complete elevation of this building. Vidhana Soudha is a government building which...

Vidhana soudha was built during 1950-56 under the leadership of then chief minister Kengal Hanumanthiah. This is one of the best legislatitive buildings and Architectural monument in India. Must see while you are in Bangalore

It is an impressive structure for a photo opportunity. Other than that there is nothing really to do.

This is one of the most important structures in Bangalore. The 46-metre tall imposing building comprises 300 rooms, each of which reflects the impressive Dravidian style of architecture. Housing 22 departments of the Government of Karnataka, Vidhan Soudha also happens to be one of the one of the largest legislative buildings and is a must-see tourist attraction in Bangalore.
