A good collection of work from some famous names - Nandlal Bose, Jamini Roy, The 3 Tagores, Amrita Sher-Gill, M F Hussain, Mukul Dey, Satish Gujral etc. A very well-maintained place with a fantastic collection of artifacts. The area is very beautiful and calm, a nice and petite building tucked inside the trees around the area. There is a hall/auditorium just right for medium sized lectures. Definitely worth checking out. This place is 1 Km from the Vidhana Soudha.
One cannot miss this structure while passing through the city of Bangalore as this houses the state assembly. The architecture is unique and the landscaping gives a perspective elevation of the structure. One can stroll along and view this great architecture which has a mixture of ideas from Dravidian, British and Arabic times. This building dominates the Bangalore skyline - a massive, impressive monument. However, in recent times it has been closed to tourists and the public, surrounded by fencing, gun totting soldiers and barricades.
Excellent architecture that stands out along the main M G road so one can hardly miss this structure while passing. It has some art work and pews elegantly lined. Having a quiet atmosphere one can absorb the quiet. Also a great place for meditation. St. Mark's Cathedral is an active church with regular mass and weddings. The inside is steeped in history. There are graves of English soldiers from the World Wars-some who passed away very young. The cathedral is built where modern Bangalore started at the beginning of the 19th century. When the British defeated Tipu Sultan at Srirangapatna in 1799, they set up a garrison in the fort by the river. The St Mark's Cathedral was first a garrison Anglican church in 1808 when founded and grew into what it is today over the years. It is said to follow the architectural model of the St Paul's cathedral in London.
