    Well this is certainly not some RANDOM place.You are unlikely to not recoginise if you know Bangalore.

    The beautiful Red structure is Sir Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall at Cubbon Park.I has a great history behind it and is based on the then Victorian architecture and is one of the oldest monuments in Bangalore now.It was built in the memory of the then Diwan of Mysore Sir Seshadri Iyer.It houses the Central library.
    It has been long since I visited this place but it does have a good collection of books.
    If I remember right,a scene from a popular Kannada movie Pallavi Anupallavi was shot around this place.

    ….Very disappointing caption and no effort to write anything about these beautiful picturs(good photography by the way) and structures….

    I am sorry. I meant Random as in choice of location. I was not referring to the structure as a Random one!
    And it would be nice, if you can share the history behind the place. Please do!

    Hmmmm…….it is still ambiguous to me.
    If I can be pedantic,how could just set of photos showing the Central library and Vidhana soudha be random.
    Random is something you would pick out of large numbers.
    I am not suggesting you to replace the caption,I do respect your idea but thought it was not appropriate.

    Though I have been a vociferous supporter of metblogs bangalore, this one leaves me disappointed. Prabhu, if you do not have anything to speak about, continue to exist in the same state. This is not a photoblog – you have a flickr for that or your personal website. Seriously, if you cannot think of writing some stuff about these central landmarks in Bangalore, I would suggest that Metblogs adopt some kind of a “Know Your City” entrance test before admitting any blogger in.

    i think there is a case for recording/capturing bangalore as is without sitting in judgement over it. Whatelse is prabhu going to say about these places that has not already been said? The pics themselves are clear and are of good quality. Why bother with text? This perhaps can be seen as an attempt as a visual log of bangalore on the day prabhu visited those places.
    Why not a vlog here at metblogs?

    I can’t help it if you decide to get offended so easily. It was just a series of photographs. You talk as if I abused these places :)

    Thank you :) Actually I thought of capturing video of some areas, but then people will crib they can watch video in news channels :))

    Well…I think Metblogs can have photo-essays as well as written essays. I, personally, enjoyed this post.

    What you can do is to include links in the text. to the URL’s where readers can get more info about these places. Then readers can click on the links if they want more info about the buildings depicted in the photographs.

    Hi Prabhu,

    Nice snaps. The central library has not been open for a long time now. I think whatever reason it was closed for should be sorted out & it should be opened sometime soon. The books they have especially on Indian history are amazing.
