What are Bangalore’s most famous landmarks and monuments?
There are several palaces to visit when you book flights to Bangalore. The most well-known is Bangalore Palace, in the heart of the city. The palace was built in 1878 and was modelled after the Tudor style of Windsor Castle in England. For several decades, the palace was home to Maharaja Chamarajendra Wadiyar. Today, visitors who have booked airfare to Bangalore can visit the palace to admire its elaborate stained-glass windows, fortified towers, Victorian-era furnishings, and sprawling lawns. Tickets to Bangalore Palace cost 460 rupees ($9.50 AUD).
Lalbagh Botanical Garden
Bangalore is a bustling city where there’s always something going on. However, if you want to escape the chaos of the city for a bit in between your return flights to Bangalore, plan a visit to Lalbagh Botanical Garden. The garden is an oasis that spans 98 hectares in the city centre. Lalbagh was first established in 1760 and still features some of the original trees and plants. While holidaying on flights to Bangalore, stroll through Lalbagh Botanical Garden to see a diverse range of plants from France, Persia and Japan. You can also view the Lalbagh Rock, which is thought to be one of the most ancient rock formations on earth.
If you’re interested in learning about Hindu culture after your cheap flights to Bangalore, plan a visit to Bull Temple. Also known as Dodda Basavana Gudi, the Bull Temple was built in 1537 to honour the Hindu demi-god Nandi, who is portrayed as a bull. The temple features striking Dravidian architecture and is thought to be the largest temple devoted to Nandi in the world. While exploring the city after your flights to Bangalore, visit Bull Temple to learn more about Hindu culture and see an enormous granite sculpture of Nandi.

Between your return flights to Bangalore, make the most of the city’s metro and bus networks. The metro in Bangalore connects to 40 stations across the city and suburbs.

Major stops along the metro include KR Market, City Railway Station, and Cubbon Park. While most locals and visitors prefer to catch the metro, public buses are also available around the centre and into the suburbs.
For a direct ride from point A to point B, you could also opt for a taxi or auto-rickshaw while holidaying on flights to Bangalore. Both taxis and auto-rickshaws operate all across the city and suburbs of Bangalore. Make sure to agree on a price in advance or ask your driver to turn on the meter to avoid being overcharged.
