Bangalore Palace from the distance

The Bangalore Palace is the palace I have seen fully with furniture. I personally walk a lot to reach this palace, because most of the Bangalore residence doesn’t know about the exact place of this palace.

The Bangalore Palace is near to the Bangalore City; this is where a bit distance from the City Market and Majestic Bus stand.

After I went to Tipu sultan Palace; I try to visit to Bangalore Palace, but most of the residence there knew only Tipu sultan palace, but finally I approach a person who is from Bangalore city, who knew about the Bangalore Palace.

My inner Mind

When left from the palace I thought no Kings in the world is a richest man, who work hard and earn hard, is the richest man in the world.

Even they have a palace or the income and reputations; they may be still in “0” in their personal life.
