Free Walking Tour of Bengaluru

Begin your guided walking tour of Bengaluru near the city's green lung: Sri Chamarajendra Park, also called Cubbon Park. From this beautiful space filled with botanical and architectural treasures, you'll head to the area's most important museums, the Venkatappa Art Gallery, the Archaeological Museum and the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum.

For a city considered the Silicon Valley of India thanks to its role as the leading exporter of information technology in the country, the Visvesvaraya Museum is one of the most significant institutions in the city and houses numerous scientific exhibitions and experiments.

Your free walking tour will continue to visit Bengaluru's most emblematic landmarks, representing the city's past as well as its future. You'll see modern skyscrapers and glass towers like the UB City Mall, a symbol of the information technology hub that the Karnataka capital has become.

Learn about the colonial history of Bengaluru, formerly called Bangalore, as you pass buildings such as St Mark's Cathedral and the Tudor Revival-style Palace. Delve deeper into India's rich cultural heritage as you appreciate the beauty of the city's centuries-old temples.

You'll also see the impressive Vidhana Soudha, the seat of the state's legislative assembly, and the Attara Kacheri, the location of the Karnataka High Court. These two buildings are not only a symbol of the city's political power but are also stunning architectural icons.
