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.

  • 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.

  • One of the few building in Bangalore known for its architecture. It is a must visit place including the insides. People are normally allowed inside by paying a small fee when there is no assembly. One of the best times to visit is during the late evening hours when you can see the building naturally as well as when it is well lit once the sun sets. The Court building in red colour is situated right opposite and seems a fad unimpressive compared to the grandeur of the Vidhan Soudha. You will enjoy while seating infront of the main building.

  • Vidhana Soudha is one of the famous attraction in Bangalore. Being one of the largest legislature building in India, Vidhana Soudha has an imposing building with more than 300 rooms which is spread over 550505 sq ft of area. Built with Bangalore Granite in the Dravidian style of architecture, this mesmerising building was built in 1956. The sight is worth viewing. Vidhana Soudha of Bangalore can be accessed from all the four directions. However, the admission to the building has been restricted and one has to take prior permission before visiting its interiors. Vidhan Soudha looks breathtakingly beautiful on Sunday evenings and on public holidays, when it is floodlit. The lights are kept on from 6:00 to 8:30 in the evening. A sightseeing tour of Bangalore is incomplete without a visit to the Vidhana Soudha.

  • It's a beautiful buidling.. great architecture. you can however view it from outside.. metro station (underground) right at the junction.

  • When I first came at this place it was really a superb experience. The calmness at early morning, fresh breeze, birds' chirping everything was for me a stunning experience.
