Built in 1880 at the exorbitant cost of one million rupees, the Bangalore Palace was modelled on Windsor Castle, completed with fortified towers and turreted parapets. It stands amid undulating lawns, partly converted into a formal garden with axial paths. Spreads over 13,700sq m (147,466 sqft) the palace fell into disrepair after 1949 when it was at the centre of an ownership dispute between the government and the ruling wodeyars. It has since been restored to the wodeyars and is now rented out as a popular venue for functions such as weddings and music concerts and film shoots. No Kannada movie is considered complete if a scene is not shot here.

Later, John Cameron, the Garden's Superintendent in the 1870s, imported several more rare species from Kew Gardens in London. Cameron was also responsible for initiating work on Lalbagh's famous Glass House, modelled on London's Crystal Palace and Conceived as a venue for horticultural shows. Surrounded by champaka trees and pencil cedars, the Glass House has played host to several visiting dignitaries. An Annual Flower show will be held here.

Gavi Gangadhareshvara Temple
One of Bangalore's oldest temples, the Gavi Gangadhareshvara temple was built inside a natural cave in Gavipuram by Kemoe Gowda in the 16th Century. Legend has it that Kempe Gowda built this temple in gratitude after being released from his five-year imprisonment by Rama Raya. The highlights here are the Granite Pillars two of which support huge discs representing the sun and the moon, while the other two are topped by a Nandi Sankranti Festivals to witness a unique phenomenon of the evening sun's rays passing between Nandhi's horns and falling directly on the linga inside the cave.
This is Typical Dravidian Style Temple Built by Kempe Gowda. This has a Monolith bull 4.5m height and 6.5m long. The popular story is that the temple was built to appease a vagrant bull, which persisted in devouring all the groundnuts in the surrounding fields despite the villager's efforts to keep it bay. The fascinating bull Temple was built and the bull apparently took the hint and stayed away from the groundnuts. The thankful farmers continue to hold a Groundnut fair (Kadalekayi parishe) near the temple premises every year to show their gratitude.
This is one of the most popular and sought after destinations in the region. The fantastic temple building, the gorgeous deities of the lord Sri Radha Krishna and the pure spiritual atmosphere make the pilgrimage a lasting memory. This temple attracts people from national and international front every week.

Flashback to the event: Video link and photographs in the
This all started in the summer of 2005 when I was living in London, Ontario in Canada. On suggestion of some of the friends in India I downloaded Skype to talk with them... I was exploring all the options Skype offered like voice chat, call quality etc.. I used search option to find someone online in India to make a test call... While the results were being displayed the third in the row was id 'sparksuri'... I was a little intrigued and just buzzed him saying 'Hi'..
He told his name was Suri and was based in Bangalore. I introduced myself as Geet (originally from Chandigarh). After having a little chit chat we said bye to each other with plans to talk again.. One day followed other and we became good friends within a span of few months.. During the conversations that followed, I felt he was more than just a chat friend.. Somewhere he also felt the same.. BUT...
Things were not as easy as they seemed.. There were lot of if's and but's... Different language, different traditions and most important we had never met each other... Meeting in person was necessary in order to take this further and I had no plans to visit India anytime soon.. We continued talking to each other and planned to meet on my India visit....
Finally after a year and a half of chatting and phone calls, I came to visit India in January 2007.. Suri came from Bangalore to meet me in Chandigarh.. We were very comfortable in each other's company and decided to speak with our families to take this relationship to the next level.. The proposal was put forth in front of both families and after a few concerns, both families happily agreed..
Due to work commitments I had to return back to Toronto in February 2007 and it was not possible for me to return anytime soon. Suri had his own business commitments & we had to wait until I came back to India and then proceed with the marriage date fixing and other formalities...
I came back to India in August 2008 for good and we met again to discuss the course of life further.. Due to certain medical emergencies in my family we had to postpone the marriage plans for some more time.. And after a long haul of favorable & not so favorable circumstances, we finally got engaged in February 2010...
The journey from 2005 till 2010 has been very eventful and with God's grace and best wishes of our dear ones we are finally going to be together for life exactly after 5 years and 5 months.... Please join us in the celebration of our new beginning!!!
Born & brought up in Bangalore (and prefers to live here), I am the elder of two siblings and also eldest grandson of Parasurama Jois family. As a child, I was one little rascal(that's what my folks say)...but I guess not anymore.
Schooling was @ VVS Sardar Patel High School in Bangalore which I am very proud of and will always be....I continued into Engineering in Computer Science discipline from the University of Mysore. As a teenager I was more involved in sports, especially atheletics , representing my school in various Taluk & District level meets and won a few track & field events. But now I prefer to enjoy them from the stands.
Having picked up Photography as a hobby from an early age(thanks to Dad, he had wonderful cameras & lenses), I continue to enjoy being behind the camera. I was the Technical Director of MAPS( Malnad Amateurs Photographic Society), a photographic club @ Malnad College of Engineering. With my knowledge on photography, I wanted to explore the options from still to moving ones. Did a short term course on Cinematography and acted in two short length movies in the lead. One of them was screened in a film festival in France by CNN. I am yet to put to use these experiences in a better way.
An automobile enthusiast from an early age, I have a passion for cars & bikes, especially tweaking engines. Has an uncanny knack of fixing any problems related to these moving machines, with ease. Participated in a few car & bike rallies as a navigator during college days...Oh man..those days were a lot fun.
After University, I worked at institutions like IISc, Dell India, Accenture & Pervasive Software for a combined period of 7 years before taking over the reigns of Industries that Dad was managing. It was time for him to retire and relax. I am greatly enjoying as a self employed & in the coming future plan to expand the firms and excel the products that we manufacture. I believe in when it comes to work, work hard and when play, play hard.
Dad is the eldest son of the Jois family. A Mechanical Engineer from BMS college of engineering, he worked at New Government Electric Factory (NGEF) for 24 years as Deputy Manager. He has travelled around the world representing his organization and has gained vast experience. He quit the organization before setting up his own firms and has catered to the needs of top electrical companies in India.
Mom is a graduate in arts and has been a homemaker since her marriage. Last of the 3 siblings, she is an extremely patient lady and one strong pillar in our family. Her absence for a few days will make our home go haywire.
Kid brother is an engineer in electronics from Mysore University. Has worked for organizatons like Satyam, Qualcomm, Eaton Technologies & is currently working as senior system analyst at Dell R&D. An introvert by nature and a gentleman by behaviour, he prefers to be absorbed by books on various subjects. He seems to be enjoying his life as a single and is ready to mingle.
Lastly most important members of our family are two Pomeranians, Pinto & Aishu, who always entertain us with their antics.
I was born and brought up in Chandigarh. Youngest of the 3 siblings, I have always been the pampered one in the family.
My father retired as a Gazzetted Officer and my mother retired as an Accountant. They are both enjoying their life now with their grandchildren.
My brother Raj is an IT professional and is the eldest in the family. He is married to my beautiful & philosopher bhabhi
Dr. Jagnoor. They both have given us a little angel 'Naaz' who is one big blessing for our family. They are all Australian citizens now and are based in Sydney.
My elder Sister Neena is a dietician by profession and has been my guide through out. Though I have always been more of a bully to her, she always loved and cared for me just like a mother. She is married to my wonderful jiju Amit, who is an IT professional. They have added two little angels Adit and Saina to our family.
I am post graduate in Biophysics from Punjab University, Chandigarh. Not really satisfied with my scientific career, I wanted to pursue some thing I loved doing and went on to do post graduation in Mass Communication from the same university. I worked for various business organizations until 2004, before I left for Canada to pursue my post graduation in Corporate Communication and Public Relations from Fanshawe College, Ontario. I worked with organizations like Dell and Prudential Consulting as a Communications Manager in Toronto. Finally, after a span of 4 years in Canada, I returned to India in August 2008 and have been with my family in Chandigarh since then.
I am forever indebted to my family for all the love and affection they have bestowed on me despite my imperfections and would like to use this opportunity to thank them all for supporting me in whatever I wanted to pursue be it my career or my personal life....
After the wedding, I plan to stay with Suri's family in Bangalore and I look forward to having a wonderful family.
" This is no hype that we met through Skype,
Though we are an unusual type,
We have decided to be together for life...."
