Bengaluru was the erstwhile summer city of Tipu Sultan, who decided to create his summer palace amidst its beautiful blossoming trees and avenues. With the IT boom and burgeoning international status, the ‘garden city’ soon became the ‘silicon valley’ of India. Considered one of India’s youngest cities, walk around the avenues, markets, cafes and take a stroll in one of the numerous parks in the city such as Cubbon Park, JP Park or the Lalbaugh Botanical Gardens.
