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.

Karnataka Vidhan Saudha (Sabha) is located in the heart of the city like other Vidhan Sabhas in India and has a very beautiful architecture. I've seen other assembly houses also and many of them have great buildings but here they have a huge garden also which makes it even more beautiful.

This place is an architectural marvel. Looks like a grand palace. The regal intricacy of the design and structure is what makes it unique. You will keep looking at the structure as you spot it. It glorifies the whole road. Lovely!

The state assembly of Karnataka looks amazing from the road side itself. One can feel like if he or she is having a look at some kind of modern day castle. On a cloudy day or during the evenings, it will be great to visit the place and then move on to cubbon park which is just across the road.... More

Viewed the government buildings from outside the gates, but are still impressive in their size and architecture. Worth a stop to to pictures, but I couldn't find a way for public visits.
