I didnt enter the building, but just pose and took picture from the outside. The building is good. nice details. I used my selfie stick with me in taking picture, and the locals around got curious about it, so I took a pose with them. :)

Vidhana soudha which is legislative assembly of Karnataka state is a beautiful monument which was built in 1950's and demonstrates the engineering and structural prowess which Indians had back in olden times. This place is frequently visited by tourists to witness the architectural wonder.
