Built-in 1887 by King Chamraja Wadiyar, the Bangalore Palace reeks of royalty, aesthetic beauty, and historical importance. This palace also hosts the beautiful historical paintings of Raja Ravi Verma.  

The palace is a powerful mixture of the English Tudor style with the Gothic fashion of Scotland. The interior boasts of a more traditional Hindu style, with the roman arches and vast gardens making you look at the palace with eyes filled with wonder.   

2. Savanadurga 

This is one of the best places for a night trek in Bangalore. There are two trails here that you can choose from, with the Karigudda trek being the less explored and more adventurous one. The Billigudda trek, on the other hand, is a safer route and can be done without much trekking experience.  

As you trek, you will come across the fort, which is the prime attraction here. This place was built back in the 1500s; the fort has a picturesque setting and allows you to relax. With the Machinbele Dam located on the opposite side, trekkers can get a fantastic view.

There is also an Amphitheater and a separate place designated for meetings and rallies inside the Freedom Park.
