Apart from it being the first IT hub, the first choice among career-oriented young professionals in India and most popular for its airconditioned weather, bangalore (or 'bengaluru') also provides ample reasons to visit it during your holidays, if you are not a resident already. 

Bangalore is located in southern India on the Deccan Plateau and is the capital of Karnataka state. It is located at an elevation of 3,000 ft approximately above sea level and is the highest among all the other major Indian cities. This is the reason why Bangalore has a pleasant weather throughout the year. The city is also famous as the 'Silicon Valley of India' for being a major contributor as a provider of Information Technology (IT) jobs and also as the country's leading exporter of Information Technology (IT) services. Thus, Bangalore is one among the major cities to contribute heavily to India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). 


Apart from being a software hub, Bangalore is a famous destination on the tourist map as well. The major places of attraction in Bangalore are:

a) Central Business District (CBD) comprising of MG Road, Brigade Road, Commercial street etc.

q) Bull Temple

r) ISKCON temple
