Being the nodal department managing this prestigious event, Karnataka Tourism sees this as a prestigious and landmark occasion to showcase the best of what the state has to offer to a global and well-travelled audience. Karnataka Tourism with the organizations of the Jungle Lodges and Resorts and KSTDC also showcased the immense tourism potential of the state in their pavilion, which is modelled on the Mysore Palace in all its grandeur.

Karnataka will host 14 G20 meetings (11 in Bengaluru, 2 in Hampi, 1 in Mysuru). This is highest after Delhi-NCR and the State is honoured to be given this opportunity. During the meetings and the stay of the delegates, we will be showcasing the State’s many offerings. Excursion trips are planned within Bengaluru city as well as for Nandi Hills, Bhoga Nandishwara Temple, Mysuru and Hampi. We would like to encourage the G20 Secretariat to also showcase the Golden Chariot, South India’s only luxury train.

The delegates had a day out in Bengaluru visiting landmarks such as the Gandhi Statue on MG Road, the Vidhana Soudha and Cubbon Park. Appreciating the salubrious climate of the city, the visitors enjoyed their filter coffees, happily posed for photographs in front of the Vidhana Soudha.
