I am looking forward to a visit to Tipu Sultan?s palace. Have heard a lot about it from my cousin who visited it once. My husband has booked a package trip for December. I hope the weather will be perfect that time.

Hi Reena Cubbon Park has different sections and most of them stay open between 10 am and 5 pm. Some of the sections, like the Kid?s Park, may be closed on Mondays. There?s no hard and fast rule. Just don?t litter.

Yeah Rachita, have you been to the Lalbagh gardens? You should visit the place. With their lotus ponds and sprawling lawns, they are like a rajah's summer retreat.

Bangalore has a rich flora. The place has amazing weather and lush greenery. It's no less than a hill station.

You must visit the Venkatappa Art Gallery, if you have even the least bit of interest in the arts. My late uncle had the fortune of showcasing a couple of his paintings here.

Tipu Sultan's Palace is a must-visit. It is to Bangalore what Red Fort is to Delhi

Hi, I am looking forward to visiting the Cubbon Park on my maiden trip to Bangalore. Are there any specific timings for visitors? Anything I should keep in mind?

Neelima, Bangalore weather is usually pleasant throughout the year. Yes, it is slightly warm in summers, but then the rains here are quite unpredictable. There is often a light drizzle in the evenings

When is the best time to visit Bangalore? I have heard it is a little hot in May-June?
