If you are new to the city and searching for the places to visit in Bangalore, the St. Mary’s Basilica is something you should not miss. During the month of September, it’s a grand celebration here.

During the feast, it’s a total rush. Take a walk nearby to explore the market area (Russel Market) and parts of the Shivajinagar. Get into the Taj Restaurant nearby that is popular for non-vegan food. Park your vehicle in a dedicated parking space to avoid towing away.
