Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall

Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall is one among the notable buildings nested within the Cubbon Park, Bangalore, is a centre of attraction since it situated in the middle of the park. I have been there last summer while visiting my friend’s home in Bangalore, Cubbon Park is the initial place we checked after arriving there a day later.
Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall
The partially oval shaped building houses the Karnataka’s State Central Library is remarkable in red and this knowledge hub holds up to 2.65 lakh books collection including a braille section. We didn’t try getting inside the building as no one interested unlike me and intend to check other places we moved after spending sometime there.
State Central Library
The Memorial Hall is a classic European style building supported by Tuscan columns is built in 1915, in honor of Sri K.Seshadri Iyer who was Dewan of Mysore State from 1883 to 1901. The Library is entered through two porticoes at each end of the front, has a lovely rose garden at its frontage decorates and enhances the building.
Statue of Sheshadri Iyer
The rose garden has lot of roses bloomed in variety of colors and amid the garden stands the statue of Sheshardri Iyer. The building at the rear looks pretty nice and resembles the face of Vivekananda House in Chennai. Among the greenery and woods, the building is highlighted in red from anywhere
