Impressions from Bangalore

After a short visit to the Parliament building Vidhana Soudha and the adjacent park, we went to KR Market, an impressive combination of markets for fruits & vegetables, flowers, spices and tools (!), all under one roof. The neighbourhood did not disappoint either with its downtown cows near cramped temples. And – of course – dogs.

Bannerghatta National Park (Zoo)

Only 15 km from Electronic City, a huge National Park with accompanying zoo sits within a hilly forest. The Northern part of the Park is open to “Safari”, which actually means driving through rather large enclosures for each species. Then there is a large butterfly conservatory, housed within an architecturally pleasing glass dome. Most impressions are from the walk-in Zoo part of the park, including the ever-present (sleeping) dogs.
