Do you have just one day in Bangalore? Don’t stress! I am here to give you Bangalore one day itinerary, so you can make most use of the time you have in this amazingly beautiful city.

Bangalore, my home, is a city located in the southern part of India in the state of Karnataka. There are plenty of things to do in and around Bangalore. Known as a city of lakes and gardens, there are plenty of things to explore in the city.

Even before I get into the one day itinerary, I would like to mention that one day to explore this beautiful city is less.
