I would like a private bathroom and DSL/Internet access in the apartment is possible. Would like to stay close to restaurants and bars, and shopping. Would appreciate is someone can request some quality style living.

Thanks,

RE: Short-term housing

Dear ***al
I welcome you to India and wish you a pleasant stay. I understand that you're coming to Bangalore for more than a month for your official purpose. I take it that you're coming from US and would like to be comfortably accommodated in Bangalore. However, don't be in a haste to select you apartment. From my personal experience, I would suggest that you put up at a hotel at first for 5 days to a week and search for good accommodation that appeals to you the most. You may discuss with your travel agent or with a real estate agency in Bangalore. You can check out the newspapers like Times of India, The Hindu or Deccan Herald for the real estate agencies. I am telling you this as you'll be coming from US and some of the people may charge you much higher rates than the actual ones. So you must watch out for such things!
As you wish to stay close to bars, restaurants and good shopping outlets, I would suggest you look out for accommodation in places like Indiranagar, Cunningham Road, Airport Road and M.G. Road.
I wish you a pleasant stay in Bangalore.

Garden city turned 'bits-n-bytes' nursery

by ravigateway

Known as the Garden City and Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore was founded in 1537 by a local chieftain Kempe Gowda. Located 1000 m above sea level, this bustling capital city of Karnataka, has a perpetual holiday atmosphere, thanks mainly to its picnic weather. Rapid industrial growth has not taken away Bangalore's old-world charm. Despite being a bustling city, the central area is studded with beautifully laid out parks and gardens, wide tree-lined avenues, imposing buildings and funky bazaars. It is India's yuppie heaven.

The Bangalore Fort and Palace : Built by Kempe Gowda, the Fort of Bangalore was later expanded by the legendary king Tipu Sultan. This summer palace has been constructed largely of wood and is famous for its carving and paintings. Nearby is The Palace Hyder Ali begun and Tipu completed.

Lal Bagh : The 96-hectare park Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens is located on the southern fringes of the city. Laid out by ancient ruler Hyder Ali, this botanical garden has over 1000 species of flora. The Glass House is the center of attraction in this 2400-acre park. Later the son of Hyder Ali added horticultural wealth to the garden by importing trees and plants from several countries. The Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens also holds a number of flower shows, especially during the Republic Day (26th January).

Cubbon Park : This 120-hectare wooded and flowered park was laid out in the heart of the Bangalore bivouac in 1864. Since then, more fairy fountains, august bandstand and a wealth of flora have been added. located near the Vidhan Soudha, the most attractive aspect of Cubbon Park is that it nestles a number of neo-classical styled government buildings.

Vidhana Soudha : This splendid colossal building of the State Secretariat is a marvel of modern architecture and is a perfect amalgamation of traditional neo-Dravidian and modern styles. built in 1954, it is the home of the State Legislature and the Secretariat and dominates the northern boundary of the Cubbon Park. What attracts most is the massive sandalwood door of the Cabinet room. It becomes beautiful on a holiday evening when lit with myriad lights. It is not open for public to see.
