On the 15th August 1947 India got independent of the UK. This day is a public holiday in India and is celebrated a lot with the family and on the streets of India.
In every city of India you will find celebrations on the street and festivities going on that can be joined. People will be in the streets, the temples and joining various festivities.
Besides visiting the independent day celebrations I visited a few temples in the area of Bangalore. The Dodda Ganeshana Gudi temple is completely recommendable. It is a nice small temple with a Bull figure inside.
In order to get around in the city I booked a driver in my hotel. For seeing a bit in the city I would recommend staying there for 2 or 3 days.
Second temple I visited was the Shiva Temple. The temple has a huge statue in the middle and can be visited all day.
The most of the time I spent watching a music show for the independence day. It included impressive performances with traditional Indian drums. Shows like that could be found all around the city and it was a special day to visit Bangalore.
