Vidhana Soudha - Review
The majestic and imposing building of Vidhan Soudha houses the State Legislature. The largest Secretariat in India, its construction began in 1952 and was completed in 1956. Chief Minister of the then Mysore State, Kengal Hanumanthaiah, was responsible for the structure, the concept and the setting of this magnificent building. The construction was supervised and executed by engineers and architects led by late B.R.Manickam, Chief Engineer of the Public Works Department. This arresting monument took five thousand labourers, 1500 chiselers, masons and wood carvers and four years to complete. Built entirely of Bengaluru granite stone in the Dravidian style, it features floral motifs on stone carvings that are drawn from the celebrated temple craft of South India.
The structure stands out as an example of architectural skill and splendor. Vidhan Soudha is crowned by a 66 feet tall and 60 feet wide central dome, with the celebrated emblem of India. It is accompanied by eight pillars and six smaller domes. This place boasts of eight floors, with four floors above the ground floor and an equal number underground with three hundred and sixty rooms and fifteen conference halls that are very well-maintained. Lookout for the splendid interiors and also the windows and pillars as each of them is an example of superior craftsmanship.

Vidhana Soudha, Bengaluru Reviews
One of the magnificent official buildings in India. The architecture reminiscent ancient Royal palaces. This can be included in the list of wonders of modern India. It consists of both Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council along with halls and several offices. The adjacent building, secretariat, also built on the same architectural style. Now this is one of the most popular spots in the city. Tourists throng this place to see the beauty of the building and take photographs in front of it.
This is pride of Karnataka. 224 elected members of legislative council will control the entire state from this holistic place. This is located in heart of the city Bengaluru. Very neat and clean. Beautiful building, architecture is magnificent. Most of the head offices are located here only.
1. Neatly maintained. 2. Very big and beautiful building. 3. Awesome place. 4. Very strict security. 5. You can't enter inside without security pass. 6. It is one of the main attractions of Bengaluru. 7. This is just opposite to the Karnataka High Court and very near to Cubbon park. 8. The architecture of this building is very nice.
The most important place in the capital of Karnataka and also a nice tourist attraction. Very strict security. Neatly maintained place. You will marvel at the different places nearby and you can easily spend a whole day just looking at the buildings, architecture, fountains etc. a must visit if you are visiting BENGALURU.....😍
The place is very clean and people friendly with very less police/rules interruptions unless you stupidly park your vehicle wherever you want(yeah that's a tip for the time you visit). 1 star less because i found there was lack of dustbins for such a well built and maintained place. More visit attracts more littering.
