The Silicon Valley of India
Bangalore is widely regarded as the “Silicon Valley of India” because of the large presence of information technology businesses there. Situated in the state of Karnataka, Bangalore is at the heart of the Mysore Plateau.
In addition to a thriving film industry, Bangalore also boasts vibrant English and foreign language theatre, rock/metal music and pub scenes. For those who are more traditionally minded, Bangalore is a major centre for Indian classical music and dance, with recitals and festivals held regularly throughout the year.
