A Bangalore weekend

During the Chinese new year holidays here in Singapore, I had booked for a short, lightning trip to Bangalore to be with my family.  We decided to go on a day trip of Bangalore on the last day of my stay.

Our first stop was the Bannerghatta National Park.  We went on a trip of the zoo and also took the Safari trip.  It was a good, memorable experience where we got to see animals like elephants, lion, tigers and deer at a close range.

We then visited the Visvesvaraya museum.  This museum has several interesting exhibits on physics, mechanics, space science, automobiles, engines etc

Our next stop was the Bangalore palace.  This was an eye opener for me.  The audio guide and the beautiful exhibits in the palace revived memories of the grandeur and opulence of the Vadiyar Maharajahs and their lifestyle during the British Raj.

I also visited the Iskcon temple at Rajaji Nagar and took a ride on the Bangalore metro.

It is surprising that I could visit so many places during this short stay.  But sometimes the lesser time you have, the more you can accomplish.

I enjoyed the short stay in Bangalore as I could be with my family as well as visit some of the landmarks of Bangalore.
