Flourishing development and a bustling IT industry transformed Bangalore into a vibrant metropolis, but the city preserves its numerous historic and cultural sights.
Popular historic sites such as Sree Surya Narayana Swamy Temple and Anjaneya Swamy Temple are in your itinerary. Kids will enjoy Bannerghatta National Park and Chandira Choodeswarar Temple. There's still lots to do: cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, test the waters at a local thermal spa, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Mark's Cathedral, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.
