Also called the Garden City, or Green City, because of the beautifully landscaped gardens and parks, Bengaluru has much to offer visitors, from historical monuments to magnificent palaces, lush green gardens to upmarket fashion streets, buzzing pubs, glitzy malls and multiplexes.
Visit the Bengaluru palace, a majestic architectural landmark, and spend a relaxed evening at the Lumbini Gardens, located on the banks of the Nagawara Lake.
Historically and culturally rich, Kolkata is India’s third most populous city. As the erstwhile capital of British India, the city exudes a colonial old-world charm like no other. One of the friendliest cities in the country, its relaxed and easy-going atmosphere is hard to miss.
Get a feel of Kolkata’s theatre, or see art exhibitions in popular city art galleries like the Birla Academy of Art and Culture and CIMA. You can also take cultural tours or heritage walks, tracing the history, food, art, and local culture.
Victoria Memorial is one of Kolkata’s long-standing icons, built during the British era to commemorate Queen Victoria’s death. A manicured garden surrounds it and houses a museum tracing the city’s colonial history.
