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.

This building looks like a palace from outside. Beautifully designed and its huge. The entry to this building is not allowed for general public and its something you may not be able to miss while driving through that road. It is so huge and beautiful.

The architecture of this building is absolutely stunning. In years past, you could go inside. Now the building that means so much to the people of Bangalore is fenced off by a chain link fence. People can only go in with official passes. Thank you Islamic radicals.

The Vidhan Soudha in Bangalore is a prominent landmark which one will come across whilst driving in Bangalore as a tourist. The building houses the legislative assembly of the State of Karnataka and other Government offices. The entire facade of the building when viewed from outside is quiet impressive and artistic.

One of the nicest walks you can have in bangalore besides MG road is by Vidhan Souda. with the high court on one side and VS on the other. its beautiful esp in the evening. The pavemetn have been recently developed and spending an evening walking by here and continuing through Cubbon Park is highly recommended.
