Which is the capital of Karnataka


We haven't been in for a long time Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka held up. We already had an afternoon shopping, booked that Monarch Hotel. Unfortunately we had to leave before midnight because our flight took off at 2:30 in the middle of the night. A little city tour with our driver and later again alone with us TukTuk was still there, but we didn't have the time to see a few sights. Wasn't that bad, because after 3 weeks of jungle and country life, the noisy and crowded city could not irritate us.

On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Karnataka In 2006, the state government decided to name 13 cities in English Karnataka in their Kannada-Change name forms. This made the former Bangalore with its around 9 million inhabitants the metropolis Bengaluru. According to a legend, an old woman gave the king in the 10th century Veeraballa given boiled wild beans to eat when he got lost here in the forest. He named the place after that out of gratitude Benda Kaluru, the "place of the cooked beans", from which Bengaluru originated.

However, since the Indian central government has not yet approved the name change, the renaming process is not yet fully completed. The city is still called in people's minds Bangaloreif you book a flight with Lufthansa, it's better to look for it Bengaluru.

The largest city in the state and the third largest in India is known as the mosquito-free zone, but also as the high-tech center of all of India. Here is a center of the civil and military aerospace industry and research, as well as important IT centers in the country. There are numerous parks in Bangalore, hence the nickname "Garden City" used.
