A 5 star visiting place for all

That was first time i am visiting Bangalore to participate for my interview selection process and sadly i dis qualified in the same day of my selection process but my cousin and my friends are there living in Bangalore only, who supported me well at that time, i went to my cousin's home. From the next day onwards our journey started because that was my first visit to Bangalore so my cousin and my friends decided to show me some places at there, we started our journey at 8 O'clock in the morning, we have taken city bus passes because it is less expensive and first we went to ISKCON temple which is at chord road. We went to there after 1 hour of journey and the temple was awesome compared to Hyderabad ISKCON its really beautiful, after completion of darshan we came out and there is a mall called Orion mall which is walkable distance from the temple and we went to that mall, i can say malls in Bangalore are really superb, we went to a movie in the mall and then we did some shopping we are there till the evening and we returned our home. I am very excited for my next day to visit some more places and the day comes again, we started our journey as usual in the bus this day we went to ZOO which is called Bannerghatta Biological Park its taken 2 hours of journey to reach there, we reached at 10 o'clock in the morning, we have taken our entry tickets but there are different types of entries are there which are different prices we selected the lowest price entry then we entered in to the ZOO. ZOO is not that much good as in Hyderabad but to spend more time with friends it is the best place and the food which is available there is average but you will get lots of fun with your friends we are there till evening we enjoyed superbly and then we returned to our home, after that i am there for few days to complete my work but trust me you will definitely enjoy the city and places and very nice place to visit in holy days with your family or with your friends. Thanks for reading.
