How to Spend 2 Days in Bangalore

How to Spend 2 Days in Bangalore

With beautiful palaces, sprawling gardens, and a great nightlife scene, Bangalore offers an enticing mix of old and new. If you have two days in the Garden City, you can see some of its top attractions and pay a visit to nearby Mysore. Here's how.

Day 1: Palaces and Gardens

**Morning:**Start your day off with a morning stroll in Lalbagh Botanical Garden, one of Bangalore’s most popular attractions, featuring pathways, a lake, and a 1889 glass house. From here, it’s a short walk over to Tipu Sultan’s Palace, an 18th-century summer palace built entirely of teakwood, with historical artifacts and beautiful frescoes adorning its interiors.

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, make your way up to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Temple, a modern temple complex on a hilltop overlooking the city. Stop for lunch at the Higher Taste, the temple’s vegetarian buffet restaurant, and explore the grounds a bit before heading over to Bangalore Palace, with its elegant facade and regal interiors.

**Night:**Spend your first evening checking out Bangalore’s nightlife scene by joining a pub crawl or heading out to one of the city’s clubs or live music venues. Alternatively, join a food tour and sample some of Bangalore’s many culinary delights.  

Day 2: Day Trip to Mysore

**Morning:**Get an early start on your second day to visit the city of Mysore, aka Mysuru, 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Bangalore. Visit the Chamundeshwari Temple, an important temple dedicated the goddess Durga that's believed to date to the 12th century (though its current incarnation is from the 1600s).

 

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, visit the city’s most famous attraction: Amba Vilas Palace, more commonly known as Mysore Palace. This historic royal residence was built at the turn of the 20th century to replace an older palace destroyed by fire and features Indo-Saracenic exteriors and painting-filled interiors.

                     

**Night:**Devote your last evening to trying some of Mysore’s most popular culinary items. Don’t miss the chance to sample a Mysore masala dosa, a crepe filled with seasoned potatoes and a spicy chutney. For dessert opt for Mysore pak, a famous local sweet made from ghee, sugar, and gram flour.
