Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) is among the most cosmopolitan, developed and progressive capital cities in the country. From being called the ‘Garden City’ to evolving into the ‘Silicon Valley’ of India, Bengaluru’s growth story has been a fascinating one. It helps that the city is blessed with benevolent weather, burgeoning dining & drinking scene, quirky independent cafes, and shopping arcades. Add picturesque landscapes, serene parks and Victorian-era architecture to the mix and you have an excellent recipe for a city worth visiting for all kinds of travellers ready.
The temperature in Bangaluru remains moderate throughout the year, making it a year-round holiday destination. However, the best time to visit is during winter, between the months of October and January. Dusshera & Kadalekaye Parishe (The Peanut Festival) are the two notable winter festivals to catch during this period as they are celebrated with much pomp & show.
