Architecture in Bangalore

Ever since I landed in the garden city, I had been fascinated by some of the good looking buildings in the city.

Well, there are quite a few wanna-be Ayn Rand’s Howard Roarks in this city.

The first one to make an impression on me was the ISKCON building. It is unique in the way it has blended Dravidian and modern architecture in its construction. Personally I’m not a spiritual person, but the stunning looks made my stay inside the building very enjoyable and a memorable one too.

When you feel the need to find peace or take your art-loving friend from Japan to an exotic location , this is the place to be. It is very sad that they don’t allow camera inside the building. This is a shot that I took with my cam from the outside.
