They are building a new assembly right next to the old one - both buildings are worth seeing from the outside but I don't think visitors are allowed in.

This is the assembly of Karnataka. This place is the centre of power and legislation. This may not be accessible to common men but on can still see it from outside.

Without dwelling into the inhabitants/bearers, if I have to review just the building, it's a fantastic, majestic and towering monument at the city center, standing as the achievement of the city and the state. Had a chance to visit inside and was a grand feeling. Give a try!
