Travel information for those who want to visit Bengaluru (aka Bangalore) and or surrounding places. I am backpacker myself so all the information given here are mostly for the back packers. I have been lucky to get free travel guides in most of the cities I have traveled. This is my contribution to the backpacker community. As soon as this work reaches some logical completion I will make it available as PDF for download. You are allowed to copy/redistribute as long as you give credit to this site.

Little history from From Wikipedia

Bangalore, officially Bengaluru (Kannada: ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು, ['beŋgəɭuːɾu] (help·info)), is the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka. Located on the Deccan Plateau in the south-eastern part of Karnataka, Bangalore is India’s third most populous city and fifth-most populous urban agglomeration.

Though historical references to the city predate 900 CE, a modern written history of continuous settlement exists only from 1537, when Kempe Gowda I, who many regard as the architect of modern Bangalore, built a mud-brick fort at the site and established it as a province of the imperial Vijayanagara Empire. During the British Raj, it became a centre of colonial rule in South India. The establishment of the Bangalore Cantonment brought in large numbers of migrants from other parts of the country.

Today, as a large and growing metropolis, Bangalore is home to some of the most well-recognized colleges and research institutions in India. Numerous public sector heavy industries, software companies, aerospace, telecommunications, and defense organisations are located in the city. Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India because of its preeminent position as the nation’s leading IT employer and exporter. A demographically diverse city, Bangalore is a major economic hub and the fastest growing major metropolis in India.
