Get to Know Bengaluru
The capital of the southern state of Karnataka, Bengaluru – also known as Bangalore – is one of the country’s fastest growing cities thanks to a thriving tech industry as well as a significant presence in the aerospace and manufacturing sectors, including many research and development campuses associated with Indian and international companies.
Major events in the city include EXCON, an annual trade fair showcasing construction equipment and construction technology in December, and the biennial crowd-favourite Aero Show.
“But it’s not all work and no play here in the Garden City,” notes Assistant Chef Concierge Rachita Bhargava, who is a member of Les Clefs d’Or India. “Bengaluru is very much at a crossroad of the old and new with modern architectural designs existing alongside the Bangalore Palace, Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace and Bangalore Fort. The city offers many opportunities for cultural exploration.”
