One of the most splendid structures to grace the historic city of Bangalore is the Mayo Hall, which should form part of your cultural and historical itinerary during your time in the city. Consider making your stay at one of the fine 5 star Bangalore hotels such as the Alila Bangalore. With gracious hospitality and a central location, it is one of the finest Bangalore luxury hotels to host your stay here. The majestic Mayo Hall came to life during the late nineteenth century, and was erected in honour of Richard Bourke, the sixth Earl of Mayo, and also the fourth Viceroy of India. Built entirely of stone and mortar, it graces the very heart of Bangalore, on Mahatma Gandhi road. Perched on a hill, it affords absolutely stunning views of the cityscape, including the Parade Grounds, and the scenic Ulsoor Lake on one side, and the Brigade Grounds and Bangalore Race Course on the other side. If you venture within, you will discover exquisite decorations of Italian chandeliers, opulent furnishings, stone arches, balustrade ledges, Greek cornices, pediment windows, Tuscan columns, and gorgeous wooden flooring. It presents a splendid visual that are ideal for amateur and professional photographers.
