This building definitely deserves more than one picture to be posted....

This is an imposing building, constructed in a style sometimes described as 'Neo-Dravidian', and incorporates elements of Indo-Saracenic, Rajasthani Jharokha and Dravidian styles.

Shri Kengal Hanumanthaiah, Chief Minister of Mysore from 1951 to 1956, is credited with the conception of the Vidhana Soudha. The majority of the unskilled labour used were prisoners, and they were set free when the construction was completed.

Hi Rajesh!
Sorry for the long absence! But don’t you think it was a great vacation; some very busy weeks and just a few days off... ;)
It must be huge, to be larger than the Secretariat in Delhi...
