13. Freedom Park Bangalore


Once the central jail, and today center for most of the peaceful protests. But, inside the main gate, there exists a different world. With the help of architects, the former central Jail of Bangalore is converted into a beautiful park. Every weekend, some or the other cultural activities are arranged and the place is a decent one to spend some time with the family.

PS –Places like Lalbaug, Cubbon Park, Vishveshwarayya Technological Museum, Wonderla, Snow world, India Gandhi Musical Fountain, hundreds of Shopping Malls, Multiplexes, Rangashankara and other theatres Etc. make Bangalore the Best place to have wonderful weekends.

If you stretch a little more – Madikeri, Sakaleshpura, Belur-Halebidu, Chikmangalore etc. can be well in your plan for an excellent weekend Getaway.

Wish you all a wonderful travel experience.
