Bangalore

Conveniently located in the commercial heart of Bengalaru, ITC Gardenia pays tribute to the city’s revered gardens and lush landscapes. Long accorded the status of ‘Pensioner’s Paradise’, Bengalaru has evolved both demographically and commercially—quietly transforming itself into India’s fifth largest metropolis and a dynamic hub of the software development industry.

With its beautiful weather, extensive sprawling parks, and host of historical attractions, the city is a popular destination for discerning leisure travelers. History mavens will want to visit the Windsor Castle-inspired, Bangalore Palace. Built over a 60-year span, it was home to the Maharaja of Mysore and is emblematic of India’s iconic Raj period. The nearby Vidhana Soudha—seat of the state legislature of Karnataka—is an impressive example of neo-Dravidian architecture. Revered Prime Minister Nehru laid its foundation in 1951. The Tipu Sultan's summer palace—known for its carved teak arches, pillars, and balconies--exemplifies the marvelous craftsmanship of the region.

Among the many significant spiritual sites, the Dodda Basavana Gudi is not to be missed. Said to be the largest temple of the Hindi bull god Nandi in the world, its massive bull icon is carved from a single piece of granite and continuously covered in layers of butter, according to traditional ceremony.

For nature lovers, the city’s many parks and gardens will delight. The Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens are a particularly beautiful example. Designed by Hydr Ali and his son, they reflect an incredible biodiversity with plants and trees imported from around the world. At the center of the 2,400-acre park stands The Glass House—a dazzling glass conservatory modeled after London’s Crystal Palace of the 1880s. A visit to Ulsoor Lake with its colorful rowboats makes for a lovely afternoon, while morning joggers will enjoy the flowering woodlands of nearby Cubbon Park.

The famous MG Road boasts a wide selection of boutiques and local handicrafts, while the modern UB City offers an elite selection of high-end stores, such as Stella McCartney, Zegna, Burberry, and Louis Vuitton.
