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.

  • This is a good place to visit with your family and walk around click pictures with the building and with the beautiful gardens I would mostly recommend it! It's an awesome experience when we go inside but only some people are allowed in I had gone inside it was a great view from there

  • One of the beautiful legislative house. Best time to visit this place will be in early morning or in evening during holidays. It’s close to cubbon park. So one can plan an early morning walk around Vidhana Soudha and cubbon park. The best way to reach here is to take a metro till Dr BR Ambedkar station. If not it would be difficult to find a place to park vehicle.

  • The seat of Karnataka's government. Security is an issue if you're trying to access the insides. It's a great place for an evening stroll just outside. Wonderful view of the High Court too.

  • Iys was just a good place to be. So open... So spacious...being here was just like as if u are in foreign country. It was good to be here. The climate was good. The way it was built was super. It vast ness of this building is really good. Awesome..

  • One of the most beautiful house of the state legislature. The magnificent architecture denotes the Mysore Neo-Dravidian style. Situated opposite to the Karnataka High court, it is well maintained. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Station is situated close to it, making it more accessible via the metro. One of the must see sites in Bangalore
