Located 12 kilometres from our hotel in JP Nagar is the sprawling Bengaluru Palace, a striking contemporary residence, which was owned by the first principal of Central High school in Bengaluru - Rev. J. Garrett. The British Guardians later purchased and transformed the palace with elegant wood carvings, cornices and floral motifs. The palace encompasses a total of 35 rooms decked with mirrors and stained glass.
Nandhi Temple (or Dodda Basavana Gudi) is located on the Bull Temple Road in Bengaluru. Just 5 kilometres away from our hotel in JP Nagar, the temple is situated on the top of a mountain. Legend has it that it was a bull which had once saved the groundnut crops and ever since, farmers every year come to the world-renowned Bull Temple to offer the first yield of their crop to the deity.
