The first stop of your Bangalore day tour is the 240-acre Lalbagh Botanical Garden. Home to more than 1,800 species of plants, shrubs, and trees, see why the garden serves as the lungs of the city and what makes it such a prominent landmark. Escape the concrete jungle of Bangalore as you take refuge here before heading to your next destination.

Continue on to Bull Temple, dedicated to Nandi Bull the vehicle of Lord Shiva. Admire the temple's architecture and presence as one of the oldest temples in Bangalore that draws devotees from all over the country. Enter the temple to see the huge idol of Nandi Bull and learn about its mythical origins. 

After the temple, visit Vidhan Soudha, one of the most famous buildings in Bangalore. As it houses the legislative chambers of the state government and is a working office, be impressed by the massiveness of the building while viewing it from outside.
