Established in the late 1800s, Whitefield is an integral part of Bengaluru, located in the state of Karnataka. Situated just 15 kilometres northeast of Bengaluru’s city centre, Whitefield is the hub of India’s IT industry.

Our hotel is also well connected via the Outer Ring Road that bypasses the city; Bengaluru International Airport (BLR) is just an hour’s drive away.
Step out and explore the Silicon Valley of India. Among Bengaluru’s most engaging landmarks is Cubbon Park. Dating back to 1864 and filled with plants, buildings, and statues, this historic park is a tranquil setting. Nearby, Vidhana Soudha is the seat of Karnataka’s Legislative Assembly. Originally made of mud, the Bangalore Fort was built in the 16th century by the city’s founder, Kempe Gowda.
For a taste of history, visit Gandhi Bhavan, a comprehensive gallery on Mahatma Gandhi. Tipu’s Palace, a medieval-looking wooden structure, features five ornate arches and minarets, and its walls and ceilings are decorated with bright paintings. Nature lovers will enjoy strolling through the botanical gardens at Lalbagh Gardens. Built in the 16th century to worship the sacred bull Nandi, Bull Temple is also worth visiting.
