Bangalore
Bengaluru (also called Bangalore) is the capital of India’s southern Karnataka state. The center of India’s high-tech industry, the city is also known for its parks and nightlife. By Cubbon Park, Vidhana Soudha is a Neo-Dravidian legislative building. Former royal residences include 19th-century Bangalore Palace, modeled after England’s Windsor Castle, and Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace, an 18th-century teak structure.
Climate
Bangalore has a tropical savanna climate (Koppen climate classification Aw) with distinct wet and dry seasons. Due to its high elevation, Bangalore usually enjoys a more moderate climate throughout the year, although occasional heat waves can make summer somewhat uncomfortable The coolest month is January with an average low temperature of 15.1 °C (59.2 °F) and the hottest month is April with an average high temperature of 35 °C (95 °F) The highest temperature ever recorded in Bangalore is 39.2 °C (103 °F) (recorded on 24 April 2016) as there was a strong El Nino in 2016 There were also unofficial records of 41 °C (106 °F) on that day. The lowest ever recorded is 7.8 °C (46 °F) in January 1884. Winter temperatures rarely drop below 14 °C (57 °F), and summer temperatures seldom exceed 36 °C (97 °F). Bangalore receives rainfall from both the northeast and the southwest monsoons and the wettest months are September, October, and August, in that order. The summer heat is moderated by fairly frequent thunderstorms, which occasionally cause power outages and local flooding. Most of the rainfall occurs during late afternoon/evening or night and rain before noon is infrequent. November 2015 (290.4 mm) was recorded as one of the wettest months in Bangalore with heavy rains causing severe flooding in some areas, and closure of a number of organizations for over a couple of days. The heaviest rainfall recorded in a 24-hour period is 179 millimeters (7 in) recorded on 1 October 1997.
History
A discovery of Stone Age artifacts during the 2001 census of India at Jalahalli, Sidhapura, and Jadigenahalli, all of which are located on Bangalore’s outskirts today, suggest probable human settlement around 4,000 BCE. Around 1,000 BCE (Iron Age), burial grounds were established at Koramangala and Chikkajala on the outskirts of Bangalore. Coins of the Roman emperors Augustus, Tiberius, and Claudius found at Yeswanthpur and HAL indicate that Bangalore was involved in trans-oceanic trade with ancient civilizations in 27 BCE.
Transportation
Bangalore is served by the newly built Bengaluru International Airport. The IATA code of Bangalore Airport is BLR. Bengaluru International Airport started operating from 24 May 2008.
The Headquarters of Air Deccan and Kingfisher Airlines is located in Bangalore.
Bangalore is well connected to the rest of the cities/towns in India through the Indian Railways. The Rajdhani Express connects the city to New Delhi, the capital of India. Bangalore is also well connected by rail to most cities in Karnataka, as well as Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Mysore and other major cities in India.
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) operates 6,600 buses on 5,700 schedules, connecting Bangalore with other parts of Karnataka as well as other neighboring states.
