Bengaluru (Bangalore) the capital city of Karnataka is situated halfway between the coasts in southern India. The city was founded in the 16th century, and witnessed great southern dynasties like the Kadambas, the Hoysalas and Vijayanagar emperors. Legend has it that the name Bengaluru comes from "boiled beans" (Benda Kaluru), which were served by a humble old lady to a hungry ruler in the 10th century. Founded in 1537 by a local Chieftain Kempe Gowda, Bengaluru has changed dramatically over the years.
Bengaluru is booming and has various nicknames such as: "Pensioner's Paradise", "The Garden City", "India's Silicon Valley", "Fashion Capital of India", "The Pub City of India"... Home to well over 6 million plus people, and a base for 10,000 plus industries, Bengaluru is India's fifth largest city and the fastest growing city in Asia. This Garden City has well - laid out parks, gardens, long avenues of blossoming trees and salubrious climate. Emerging as the hi-tech capital of India, it still retains a charm that is totally Indian.
Surprisingly, despite some adverse environmental impact of industrial development in Bangalore, another of its nicknames is "The Garden City". That's thanks to many local parks, along with pink cassias, golden acacias, and jacarandas, which bloom throughout the city.
Many international visitors come to Bengaluru for its excellent ITES, schools and universities, such as the Indian Institute of Science. While enjoying the warm weather year-around, tourists can also use the city as a central base for day trips to other Karnataka attractions. And Bengaluru doesn't only produce fine silk and software. "The Fruit Market of the South" is great for grapes, mangoes and guavas.
Last but not the least, Bengaluru is even gaining the status of the "Floriculture Capital" due to the present blossoming of flower exports from the city. Because of its rich stone resources, Bengaluru is also known as the "Stone City", for its granite deposits.
