Built by Rev. Garrett, the first Principal of the Central High School in Bengaluru, it was bought by Chamarajendra Wodeyar in the year 1873. Built in Tudor-style architecture, it is adorned with magnificent woodcarvings. The palace holds resemblance to the medieval castles that were built in Normandy and England. Once surrounded by beautiful gardens, the palace has now not what it used to be. But, it still succeeds in attracting tourists. Gothic windows, Fortified towers, Battlements and Turrets lend a great degree of magnificence to the Bengaluru Palace. Mainly constructed of wood, it features splendid carvings and paintings.

It's area is very easy. Well to do people think as a prestige to conduct their children marriage in palace. There are nine entrance to it. That is to nine marriages can take palace on the same day. Palace is maintained very well. One should have a desire to visit the palace to have feeling as if v have lived in such a luxury.
There's a lot that can be done to improve the experience of the visitors. The automated audio narration is a sham and not needed, human guides are much better in walking through the place and it's history for they're able to explain better in a personalized way and take ques. It could be a lot better maintained than how it was. Mysore palace is much better in all aspects.
Good India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only." India brings out so many different feelings in me. I’ve been fascinated with Indian and Indian culture since I could remember – ever since the 60s with the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.” – Joe Perry India is a land known for its exotic spices, religions like Hinduism and Buddhism, and colorful traditions. Today, India boasts a bustling population, and is increasingly becoming a respected competitor in the global marketplace. Like many countries around the world, India blends together a mix of the ancient world and modern-day living
I think this is the best place. I would like for an improvement here but it's up to the administrator who look after it. Services are great here but as you know they are all one or an another better don't keep a much hope into what you can't afford here
Entrance is excellent, but not so good from inside. Also due to maintenance work, lot of area was closed. Ticket price is also on higher side, though audio tour was included in it. I would suggest to visit it if you really wants to see any palace, but avoid if you don't have much time and would like to cover anything else. It will take approx 1 hour inside.
