Bengaluru is now one of the major metropolitan cities of India. It is likely that the city’s excellent climate and cosmopolitan culture started to attract major companies but the IT boom turned it into one of the most populous and popular places to be. Bengaluru is a veritable melting pot of cultures, here you can find cuisines, art, entertainment, and celebrations from all parts of India and many parts of the world.
Each year, thousands arrive in Bengaluru to take advantage of the excellent education, healthcare, and employment opportunities that the city has to offer. Some prefer to find a single room PG in Bangalore but many young boys and girls look for shared apartments in beautiful residential areas. Richmond Town, originally established in 1883 by the Britishers as part of the cantonment area, is now one of the best-loved residential neighbourhoods of the city.
The first thing that will catch your eye as you reach Richmond Town is the seamless blend of colonial architecture and modern uprises. This part of Bengaluru retains its olde worlde feel despite the availability of all the features of modern living. It is also one of the safest neighbourhoods in the city making it a popular choice.
Richmond Road is now the main arterial road that connects most of this sprawling city. This means that the availability of public transport is extremely good. Most Bengalureans prefer two-wheelers for time and convenience, though, and this works out quite well for those looking to live in Richmond Town. Apart from work, though, there may not be much needed to venture out.
This part of town has all the pre-schools, schools, malls, restaurants, shopping areas, hospitals and banks that you need. Baldwin International School, Sacred Heart School (separate schools for boys and girls), Bishop Cotton Boys School and St. Josephs Indian High School are among the best schools in Richmond Town. Pearl Academy Bengaluru and St. Joseph’s College are among the best higher education institutions in the neighbourhood. Gleneagles Global Hospitals, Fortis La femme, Republic Hospital, and Lakeview Hospital offer the best medical care in the locality. Shop to your heart’s content at UB City, Bangalore Central Mall, and the Garuda Mall. Do not miss out on the street shopping experience of Richmond Town, though. Many of the shops at Johnson Market are institutions.
Richmond Town and neighbouring up-and-coming areas such as Brigade Road and Ashok Nagar offer fine dining experiences, bars and pubs, clean green parks, and a number of entertainment options. The people are contentious and aware of cleanliness and sanitation.
