What can I say about this mesmerizing city, which gives me new things to learn every day?
These are what fascinates me about this city.
It is the Garden City. At every turn, you can find a park and every spring the roads have a magnificent view with the blooming flower trees that border the roads. Flower girls visit the houses and Bangaloreans love flowers.

It is an art lovers' paradise. There are art galleries spread through out the city.Moreover,the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath hosts the Annual Chithra Santhe, where Artists from every nook and corner of India assembles to exhibit their art.
Last year alone, the Chitra Santhe featured works of more than 400 artists and had some 1,200 stalls, turning the footpaths between Windsor Manor Circle and Shivananda Circle into a vibrant, informal art market from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. An open gallery, the exhibition facilitates direct sales of art without any middleman between the customer and the seller.
Being a software hub, it is the melting pot of various cultures and religions. You are never far from a temple, church or Mosque wherever you turn. Iranis, Africans, Nepalis, British, Japanese, Irish...Bangalore is home to many expatriates.
We enjoy moderate climate throughout the year, as Bangalore is more than 800 meters above mean sea level.
