About the Tour

Cubbon Park is a major green lung of Bangalore. Spanning several hundred acres, it encompasses thousands of trees and plants of hundreds of different species. This tour will take an interesting route that will cover all the major landmarks inside and on the periphery of this gentrified park. You will also uncover several hidden gems along the route. Topics include the evolution of Bangalore; The British legacy; Trees of the park; Victorian-era buildings and the five famous statues inside the park. After winding our way through the shaded lanes of Cubbon Park, we will end the tour in front of Bangalore's most majestic building, the Vidhana Soudha.

Comments

I was fortunate enough to go on a walking tour with Praveen himself while he was testing this audio tour. Must say, the amount of work and effort he’s put in bringing this out is amazing indeed. Looking forward to more of such guided walk tours by Praveen.
