The Silicon Valley!
Being a computer Engineer myself, I had heard a lot about the Silicon Valley of India- Bangalore. So in order to find more details about the city, I landed in a tour operator office. "I want a taxi to Bangalore" I demanded. " Sir, Bangalore is a beautiful city, but we have a package that will enable us to cover cities like Ooty and Mysore that are in the vicinity." He also told me that there will be around 50 foreign tourists and they would provide us with the super deluxe bus with all the basic necessity. " It is going to be guide tour" informed the tour operator.
Not a bad Idea !, I thought, and two days later I was escorting 50 other tourists belonging to different nationality. To be honest I was quite impressed by the services provided by the tour operator on the bus. Well, India's Silicon valley was once known for its gorgeous gardens, scintillating parks and boulevards.
I was astonished to know that it houses major software companies in the world such as Hughes Software System (HSS). Apart from the technical side, the city is an exotic mix of palaces, temples and wildlife parks. Well, during our trip we were shown the Bull temple, Tipu palace, Bangalore Palace and the Banneghata National Park. The most enthralling out of the all was the Tipu Palace. Our guide told us that it was built in 1791. I especially liked the museum that showcased artifacts related to Hyder Tipu Regime.
The Tipu's Regime!!
After finishing the one corner of the triangle, our tour headed towards Mysore known for its palaces. Murthy, our guide, told us that it is the second largest city of Karnataka. The city is also famous for its Dusshera festival. In Mysore one has number of things to see. The Mysore Palace, Brindavan Gardens, The Nagarhole National Park and the B. R hills.... and many more. I especially liked the Chamundeswari temple on the Chamundi hills. Only problem I faced was reaching the temple as we had to cross 1000 Stone steps
" My god! They should have some lift here" commented one of my fellow tourist friend. The temple housed the statue of a bull, Nandi, favorite of Lord Shiava, Indian God. The statue is 4.8 m high and is believed to be 300 year old.
How Cold !!!
Away from the Dust and din of the city lies Ooty known for its magical beauty. As such, Ooty don't have many tourists spots but has a beauty that could withhold any kind of tourist. We covered the Botanical Garden, Dodabetta peak and the Pykara falls.
