Having evolved gradually from being the Garden City to the Silicon Valley of India, Bengaluru is the third largest and one of the most livable cities in India.
The unprecedented growth of IT in Bangalore has reshaped the façade of the city now, one can choose to take a long, leisurely stroll through the greenery of Cubbon Park, or hop into one of the several acclaimed craft breweries in the city for a nice, cool drink. Bangalore had come to be renowned for its eateries and pubs dotting every corner of the city, serving any cuisine one can think of. Brunches, buffets, burgers, rooftop cafes, late-night eats - Bangalore has it all.
Aside from the central business and commercial districts (and the roads leading up to them), the neighborhoods of Bangalore are mostly quiet and serene, especially the older parts of the city. There's still the early-morning cacophony of street vendors ambling down the streets with carts, selling fresh fruits and vegetables. There are a huge number of beautifully decorated parks in the city that are ideal for going on a morning stroll or a jog. One walk through the 300-acre Cubbon Park, or the botanical gardens of Lalbagh, and you'll know exactly why Bangalore is so famously called India's 'Garden City'.
