Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain Park, Bangalore Overview

Created in 1995 by B. N. A. Technology Consulting Limited, Hong Kong, Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain is probably the most technically advanced and one of the biggest artificially created fountains in India. Located on T. Chowdaiah Road, the enthralling fountain has been based on multimedia technology, MIDI interfaces and hardware architecture. The magnanimous fountains surrounded by pleasant lush gardens hosts two nightly light and sound shows per day. The show together with rhythmic dancing of the sparkling water is an enchanting site.

The landscaped park is maintained by the Department of Horticulture and includes a play garden for kids. The entrance also houses a dummy train engine in the honour of the then Chief Minister C. K. Jaffer Sharief, who then got the fountain constructed. All in all, the fountain park is an asset to not only Bangalore but all of India. It is believed that with very little modification, the park can surpass the techniques and designs of many foreign attractions.

Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain Park Reviews

Its an open area, carry an umbrella if you're suspecting the weather to turn grey, since visiting hours peak in the evenings. A great family hangout place. Also, remember to not litter the place. People tend to bring snacks available at the gate and leave the leftovers where they're sitting. Use the dustbins.
