  • Description

    Once famous as the baston of Tiger of the south, Tipu Sultan, Bangalore today is known as the Silicon valley of India. This town experiencing a pleasant climate throughout the year offers a beautiful contrast of nature and man made architecture. The city of Gardens as it is known as, Bangalore is dotted with innumerable parks and is always in bloom; true to its name, which, the scholars believe has been derived from the innumerous trees of Benga. The name founds a mention as Bengaluru in the 9th century inscription.<br />Though the town is ancient town, it developed only after it was gifted to Kempe Gowda, a chieftain in the Vijayanagara Empire. He used the revenue from the land to devlop the town encouraging foreign merchants, artisans and people to settle down here. Later it was further developed by Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan who fought vailantly against the British in vain. Thus the city today has become the hub of old with new. It has ancient temples like the bull temple, magnificent forts, beautiful gardens like the Lal Bagh, one of the oldest museums of India and the most modern structures suitable to hold the IT hub of India.

Tipu Sultan's summer Palace.The fort, today in ruins, is famous as Tipu Sultan's summer palace, which was actually a mud fort, built by Kempe Gowda in the early 16th century. As the princely state of Mysore changed hands with various rulers, it was passed to Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan. Unfortunately the fort was destroyed during the constant battles fought between the brave Tipu Sultan and the British. Tipu Sultan, died fighting a vain battle defending this very fort, which was also burnt down.

The Bull TempleBull; known as Nandi, is the mount of Lord Shiva. Every temple dedicated to Lord Shiva has the Nandi on the doorsteps. But this temple, though dedicate to Lord Shiva is famous as the bull temple, because of the huge monolithic bull sitting at the doorsteps of the comparatively small temple. The temple is situated at Basavanagudi surrounded by groundnut fields around. According to a legend, once a farmer hit a bull which was trying to eat the ground nuts. The bull turned into a stone and started growing, as it started becoming huge, the farmers requested Lord Shiva, who in turn asked to place a trident on the forehead of the Bull. This made the bull stop growing. Since then the first crop of ground nut is offered to the deity in gratitude. \r\nThe temple besides was built by Kempe Gowda in the early 16th century which has a typical Dravidian architecture. The monolithic bull, which is 4.57 m high and 6.10 m long, is carved out of huge granite and is shiny black in colour and is perhaps the only largest monolithic Bull in the world. .
