I have taken this photo with my iPhone 7 plus. This place is called Vidhana Soudha. It’s the Legislative Building located in Bangalore Karnataka. This building construction was started in 1952 and completed in 1956.
Kengal Hanumanthaiah is credited with the conception and construction of the Vidhana Soudha. The foundation stone was laid by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, on July 13, 1951. However, it was Hanumanthaiah who was instrumental in the redesign and speedy construction of Vidhana Soudha. He visited Europe, Russia, the United States, and other places and got the idea of building the Vidhana Soudha by incorporating various designs from the buildings he had seen. It was completed in 1956. He took a lot of interest and effort in building this marvelous granite building.
There are three hundred rooms in Vidhana Soudha and they accommodate 22 departments of the state government.
Vidhana Soudha looks breathtakingly beautiful on Sunday evenings and public holidays from 6:30 pm to 8:30pm . It’s a must see place if you are touring Bangalore.
