Karnataka Vidhana Soudha

The Vidhana Soudha located in Bengaluru (Bangalore), is the seat of the state legislature of Karnataka.

It is an imposing building, constructed in a style sometimes described as Mysore Neo-Dravidian and incorporates elements of Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian styles. The construction was completed in 1956.

Kengal Hanumanthaiah is credited with the conception and construction of the Vidhana Soudha,. The foundation stone was laid by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, on 13 July 1951.

However, it was Hanumanthaiah who was instrumental in the redesign and speedy construction of Vidhana Soudha. He visited Europe, Russia, United States and other places and got the idea of building the Vidhana Soudha by incorporating various designs from the buildings he had seen. It was completed in 1956. He took a lot of interest and effort in building this marvelous granite building.
