Cubbon Park information

Lonely Planet review

In the heart of Bengaluru’s business district is Cubbon Park, a sprawling 120-hectare garden named after former British commissioner Sir Mark Cubbon. Under its leafy boughs, groups of Bengaluru’s residents converge to steal a moment from the rat race that rages outside. On the fringes of Cubbon Park are the red-painted Gothic-style State Central Library , while at the northwestern end of the park are the colossal neo-Dravidian-style Vidhana Soudha , built in 1954, and the neoclassical Attara Kacheri , that houses the High Court. Both of the latter are closed to the public.
