“India’s Silicon Valley” – this name is often used when describing Bangalore. The city got this name because of large number of modern plants located on its territory. However, tourists keep visiting this city not because of industrial development of this region, but because of large number of historical and architectural monuments that can be found here.
The Cubbon Museum is one of the most notable sights of the city. It is named after the main commissar of the country. The museum was organized in 1864 and is situated in the central part of the city. The Cubbon Museum is surrounded by the park of the same name. Walk through the Cubbon Park and you will reach the State Museum that exhibits large collections of coins, sculptures and ceramics.
One more sight of Bangalore is a local planetarium that has been built in honor of Jawaharlal Nehru’s (the 1st prime minister of India) 100th birthday.
