About
The Neo-Dravidian-style Vidhana Soudha is the seat of the state legislature while the red Attara Kacheri houses the High Court. In 2005, an annex called the Vikas Soudha was inaugurated, designed as an exact replica of the Vidhana Soudha. Though these buildings cannot be visited, they can be viewed from the outside.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Cubbon Park
In the heart of the city’s business hub is Bangalore’s most favourite garden. Cubbon Park is a beautifully maintained 120-hectare garden where all the local residents of the city take a break. A landmark ‘lung’ area of Bengaluru, the gardens are dotted with a lot of colonial heritage and charm, which are today a part of the state capital’s political centre. Home to the red-painted Gothic style State Central Library, the magnificent Vidhan Souda built in Mysore Neo-Dravidian architectural style, the neoclassical Attara Kacheri built in 1864 and housing the High Court, oldest museums and GPO in its vicinity, a trip to Cubbon Park is a great heritage walk. Sundays at the park are quite a treat with a plethora of activities to choose from - concerts, fun runs, yoga, tiny farmers market, the list is endless.
How to get there
  • Cubbon Park • 6 min walk

Waste of time with this visit as it is just another State Legislature building and isn't worth photographing. It was just one of those places we had to see on the tour

Visited Vidhana Soudha during my trip to Bangalore, and it's a must-see! The place is like an architectural boss – especially when lit up at night. Seriously, it's so grand! Whether you're into history or just want a cool Insta pic, Vidhana Soudha should be on your Bangalore to-do list.

Vidhana Soudha is a building consisting of some state government offices. You can visit inside if you have some work, otherwise as a tourist, you can stop outside on the road to click some nice photos. In India, where most of this kind of buildings are built during British empire, it is nice to see such buildings which has been designed & made by Indians.

The massiveness and architecture of this government house is unbelievable. On a non busy morning, you can even park on the street and take pictures.

The size of the building is amazingly big. Nice lawn and statues. Posed for pictures here. It is opposite the Metro and close to Cubbon Park so a visit should be quite pleasant.

Just the selfie points not much of space it is basically a selfie point in the road itself. But building of vidhan souda looks spectacular behind that is the only Plus point.

Largest legislative building in India, built with granite in Neo Dravidian Style. Keeping the tradition of Mysore State was very spacious and unique.

Always wanted to go here, finally went there after long time. Very near to Cubbon park, and after finishing my park walk went there. Beautiful govt office looks like a palace.

Just take the time to see this place from the outside - it's a testament to the enormously inspiring optimism of a new and independent India. Notice the inscription above the central portico: "Government's Work is God's Work." Cuts both ways.
