Vidhana Soudha

The entrance of Vidhana Soudha is marked with a four-headed lion, the famous symbol of Indian sovereignty. Then there is the massive sandalwood door of the Cabinet room that is worth watching during a visit to the Vidhana Soudha in Bangalore. Vidhana Soudha is accessible from 4 directions though the entrance is restricted and prior permission is required to visit it. Watch the entire Vidhana Soudha lit up every Sunday evening and on public holidays between 6pm and 8:30pm.

The chief engineer of Vidhan Soudha, B.R. Manickam mainly made use of granite to get the edifice constructed. The three hundred rooms of Vidhan Soudha accommodate approximately twenty-two departments of the state government. Five thousand labourers, 1500 chisellers, masons and wood carvers were employed to bring the building to its present form.

Known as the famous landmark of Bangalore, Vidhana Soudha houses the Legislative Chambers of the state government. This 46-meter high seat of the government houses 22 departments and 300 rooms. However, the admission to the building has been restricted and one has to take prior permission before visiting its interiors. Vidhan Soudha looks breathtakingly beautiful on Sunday evenings and on public holidays, when it is floodlit.
