Settled in the 16th century and officially named Bengaluru, Bangalore is popularly known as “the IT Capital of India” and “the Silicon Valley of India"—but the city’s verdant parks, gardens, and tree-lined streets have long inspired another nickname: India's "Garden City.” Offering up the perfect blend of traditional and modern, the capital of Karnataka state has emerged as a truly world-class city. With its recent boom in trendy clubs and stylish bars and cafes, Bangalore has also been dubbed the pub capital of India.
The Sheraton Grand Bangalore Hotel at Brigade Gateway is conveniently located northwest of Bangalore in an emergent new city centre. Part of the city’s tallest and largest multiplex building, Brigade Gateway, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the world renowned ISKCON temple, and just 31 kilometres from the Bengaluru International Airport (BLR). It is also connected by skyway to the city's now-largest shopping centre, the new Orion Mall.
For those who love to ‘shop till they drop’, the hotel is situated near to the Malleshwaram markets, whose shopkeepers are friendly and enjoy, a good haggle—and whose bargains on silks, spices, fabrics and figurines make it an excellent spot to hunt for gifts and treasured mementos. We are also just three kilometers from Peenya, one of Bangalore’s premier Industrial areas, and near Manyata Tech IT Park.
Among Bangalore’s most engaging landmarks, Cubbon Park—which dates back to 1864—is a short drive from the hotel. Its plentiful plants, buildings, and statues offer a serene respite from the buzzing metropolis. Near there, Vidhana Soudha is the seat of Karnataka’s Legislative Assembly. Also noteworthy is the 16th-century Bangalore Fort, which was originally made of mud and built by Kempe Gowda, the city’s founder.
For another engaging glimpse into the past, visit Tipu’s Palace. Called “Rashk-e-jannat”, or the “Envy of Heaven,” the wooden palace features five ornate arches and minarets, and bright paintings adorning its walls and ceilings. History enthusiasts will enjoy Gandhi Bhavan, a comprehensive gallery on Gandhi, while nature lovers might prefer a stroll through the Lalbagh Gardens. These diverse botanical gardens are filled with exotic foliage and flora—and there is plenty of marvelous marine life at India’s second largest aquarium, the Government Aquarium.
We look forward to welcoming you at the Sheraton Grand Bangalore Hotel at Brigade Gateway.
