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 building is very large and hosts thousands of Govt. employees. This building is not open to public, however, general public do take selfies standing in front of this building all through...

Both the building and the roads surrounding it are immaculately maintained and reminiscent of Rajpath/India Gate in Delhi. It is the seat of the Karnataka legislature. I think you need special permission to go in. The building is huge and unique and provides plenty of photo opportunities. Nearby are the Karnataka High Court (red sandstone building) and Cubbon Park. It... More

The Attara Kacheri is the High Court building as it is called in the local language. Both these buildings have beautiful Colonial architecture and are the iconic landmarks of the city. They are situated opposite each other, and very near... More

Marvels of Architecture. One of the best Building of Vidhan Sabhas in the country. Beautiful landscape, huge lawns and excellent place deserves at least one visit when in the Garden city.

One of the most beautiful structures in Bangalore houses the state government and the legislative assembly. This place is off limits to general public due to safety.

Good spot for a few selfies, 5-10 mins is enough for this place, as common public is not allowed inside the building. If you are awestruck with the view, you can spend time in cubbon park which is opposite to the vidhana souda
