Bangalore is known as the “Garden City of India" because of its gentle climate, broad streets, greenery and the presence of many public parks, such as Lal Bagh and Cubbon Park. Bangalore is sometimes called as the “Pub Capital of India" and the “Rock/Metal capital of India" because of its underground music scene and it is one of the premier places to hold international rock concerts. In May 2012, Lonely Planet ranked Bangalore 3rd among the world's top 10 cities to visit.
Near City Market is this dilapidated palace built-in 1790. Made largely out of wood with embellished balconies, pillars and arches, this two-storeyed structure is a replica of the Dariya Daulat Bagh in Sirangapatna. It is located 11kms from the Hotel.
Located Near the Vidhana Soudha just 9kms from the Hotel. Laid out by Richard Sankey in 1864, it is spread over 334 acres. It has a rich recorded history of abundant flora and fauna plantations coupled with numerous impressive and aesthetically located buildings and statues of famous personages, in its precincts.
This is the seat of the Secretariat and the State Legislature. Built in 1956, it has a 66-ft dome, Rajasthani Jharokhas and Indo-Saracenic pillars. It is located 9kms from the Sterlings Mac Hotel. Things to watch out for: the Sandalwood door to the Cabinet Room, and the Speaker’s Chair which is made of Mysore rosewood. Adjacent to it is the Vikasa Soudha, a replica of its original, built to house part of the legislature and bureaucracy.
