Vikasa Soudha Overview

Ranked 29 of 489 sightseeing in Bangalore
Vikasa Soudha is centrally located on Dr Ambedkar Road in Seshadripuram at the north western end of Cubbon Park. Constructed as an annex to Vidhana Soudha, the secretariat and the state legislature building of Karnataka, Vikasa Soudha houses numerous government and legislative offices.
The brainchild of the then Chief Minister of Karnataka S.M Krishna, Vikasa Soudha was built in 2005 to take away the load from the Vidhana Soudha. Built as a replica of the Vidhana Soudha, Vikasa Soudha has eight floors.
Built with some of the best technologies like a grid interactive solar power system, rainwater harvesting and modern fire extinguishing system, Vikasa Soudha has around fifteen conference halls and as many as three hundred and sixty rooms.
Vidhana Soudha, Cubbon Park and the High Court Building can also be visited while you are at Vikasa Soudha.
Though the weather in Bangalore is quite pleasant throughout the year, the best time to visit Vikasa Soudha is between the months of October and February when the weather is at its best.
Suitable to be visited by the entire family, Vikasa Soudha can be easily reached by bus, cabs, auto rickshaws and even walking.

Superb and excellent place

It is not to explained by word, so you must watch and feel. What an amazing feeling with that cooling climate. At sunset, all wish to take a selfie or group pic with that. I recommend.

House of legislation and entry is strictly prohibited

It is second house of parliament. It is next to Vidhanasoudha. Here entry to public with out permission is strictly prohibited. It is beautifully architecture and designed. It is about 3 km from Majestic Bus Stop and 4 Km from Kalasipalyam Bus Stop. People like mainly farmers having problems can directly give application here. People travelling of sightseeing should visit once this Vidhanasoudha and get greetings.

Best Architectural Building of Bangalore

I think this place is wrongly named here - it should be 'Vidhan Sauda'. It is assembly house of Karnataka. One of the oldest and most prominent architectural structure of Bangalore. However, due to construction of Metro Railway for the last couple of years, this place always remain surrounded with construction material these days. You can see it only from outside and entry for visitors not allowed. Good place to visit for some photo opportunity.

Piece of art

I was invited for a meeting in Vikas Soudha. I did not take the print out of the invitation. The security would not allow me. It was 1 hour before the official business starts. So he allowed me. They made rangoli in granite stones and marbles. Even the dots came out well. They are there all over at the entrance of each hall.A wall of 2-3 storeys is artistically decorated with all sorts of Karnataka's scenes, Gomateshwara, Gol Gumbuz, Vidhana soudha, Mysore palace, Belur, Halebed etc. was depicted. The highlight is the hall. A semi circular gallery of 5-6 steps only. Each chair is rotating. Each chair has a mike. Somebody on the stage can not make out who is talking from which side. Each hall has a small place with heavily cushined sofas for VIPs. A bigger hall for others. Even toilets are different. There are lifts from each wing to go to different halls. Altogether a modern building with old decoration. Rangoli was seen in paints in front of the houses for long, Now it is in granite.
