Bangalore is one of the fastest growing major metropolis in India. The city enjoys a rich cultural heritage with a thriving theatre and arts scene. Bangalore Palace built in 1887 by the "Wodeyar Dynasty" is one of the most popular landmarks in the city. Inspired by England's Windsor Castle this evocative palace has Tudor-style architecture, with fortified towers, arches and green lawns. The interior with the royal family still living there showcases over 30,000 paintings and exquisite woodcarvings.
