Vidhan Soudha is located in the heart of the Bangalore city and this is the seat of the Karnataka state legislature. The building was constructed in Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian style. The first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation of this imposing structure on 13th July 1951 and was completed in 1956. The then Chief Minister Sri K. Hanumanthaiya has an important role in its establishment.


Vidhan Soudha is in rectangular shape and the length of the north and south sides is 700 feet and the length of the east and west sides are 350 feet. It has three upper floors in the northern wing and a cellar floor in the southern wing. The legislative assembly chamber is 112 feet high measuring 125 feet by 132 feet.


The diameter of the central dome is sixty feet supported by eight pillars. Apart from this there are six smaller domes. Many convicts were employed in its construction and they were released after the completion of the work. The cost of the total project was Rs. 1.75 crores.


This is the center of attraction of all the tourists who visit Bangalore and serves as an important landmark.
