This is one place you just can't miss if you are visiting Bengaluru. Right from the green and elaborate campus, the art exhibitions and the exquisite pieces of work housed in the building, this is a place that will take your breath away. One could spend hours at the Parishat and not know when time had passed - during my visit, there was a group of artists from one of the art schools of Kolkata showcasing their work. Inspiring and enigmatic, the collection took me back to the pieces of work at the Tate. If you are in Bengaluru, and haven't been there, I'd suggest, head there at the first opportunity - you will not be disappointed.

A visit to the NGMA is highly recommended. The Art Gallery is richly endowed with collection of old masters and contemporary art, both paintings and sketches. Special exhibitions are a regular feature. Substantial collections of Ravi Varma, Rabindranath Tagore, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gillare all major draws. The Gallery is set in a delightful garden, and hosts regular Arboretum Walks, Gallery Walks which also are much looked forward to. The sheer variety of trees from all parts of the world make for a memorable experience. And unlike many places, there is so much for visitor participation that makes each visit doubly pleasant. The 180 seat auditorium is the locale for many performances.

Going to country like India, this is a must-to-go place. They have quality collections which ages from 3000-3500 year ago. Imaging that at the same time of these beautiful art work has been created, on the other side of the world, people are still living in cave and wearing leaves and trees. The ticket is only 16 for adult, very reasonable, worth it.
