KARNATAKA STATE LAWN TENNIS ASSOCIATION
Cubbon Park is a landmark 'lung’ space of the Bangalore city, located within the heart of city. Lush greenery welcomes any visitor entering Cubbon Park through any of the approaches and our club house is located within the Cubbon Park.
The landscaping in the park creatively integrates natural rock outcrops with thickets of trees, massive bamboos, with grassy expanse and flowerbeds and the monuments within its limits, regulated by the Horticulture Department of the Government of Karnataka. Rich in plant wealth, many indigenous and exotic botanical species are found here. The park has about 68 genera and 96 species with a total of around 6000 plants/trees growing in its locale. Silver Oak, having the distinction of being the first oak introduced to Bangalore from Australia, is still found in Cubbon Park.
The predominantly green area of the park has many motorable roads, and the well laid out walking paths running through the park is frequented by early morning walkers and the naturalists who study plants in the tranquil natural environment.
Tourists visiting this Park in the city of Bangalore have nicknamed the city itself as 'Garden City'. Though Kannada is the language spoken by the locals, because of Bangalore's cosmopolitan nature and demographic diverseness, one could comfortably converse in English, Hindi or any of the numerous Indian languages. Bangalore is best known for making people all over the world, at home.
While the Vidhana Soudha (the State Secretariat) is the prime attraction, one could also enjoy the marvels of the universe at the Nehru Planetarium; The Government Museum of Bangalore; the Visvesvaraya Technological and Industrial Museum or the LalBagh Botanical Gardens, which holds a number of flower shows, especially during the Republic Day, attracting several tourists. The Fort and Palace of Tipu Sultan, which have historical significance, are other important places to see in Bangalore\ Some of the temples that have stood the test of time and have attracted thousands for their tranquility, antiquity and sanctity are the Nandi Bull Temple, the Venkataramanaswamy Temple, the Gavi Gangadhareshwara Cave Temple and the Someshwara temple, the last being the oldest in the city and more than a thousand years old.
With the advent of IT, Bangalore is now one of India’s largest and most populated cities. With a diverse population of over 10 million, it is called the Silicon Valley of India being the proud host of many successful IT companies of the world — with Infosys and Wipro headquartered in the city. It is also the scientific hub of India and has within its precincts one of the oldest research universities — the world renowned Indian Institute of Science (llsc) and the Raman Research Institute (RRI). Bangalore is also home to Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore) (IIMB), National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) and numerous public sector heavy industries, technology companies, aerospace, telecommunications, and defence organisations, such as Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Added to these are many multi-specialty hospitals. In short, it is a perfect amalgamation of modernization and development with a glorious history, presented in a backdrop of beautiful nature that makes Bangaloreans proud of their city.
