Sunsets are the most underrated experiences in the world. Yes, we call it an experience and not a mere event because watching a sunset requires you to sit and experience the sky be moody with its colours, almost confused as to which colour to pick in order to wish the sun farewell for the night. You will experience the sun leave behind its traces even when its gone, then slowly disappear all at once.
Sunsets are a live example of all’s well that end’s well. No matter how bad a day you have been having, binging on sunset will make it much better. However, if you are someone who lives in the city of Bengaluru, do not let the bright lights, never-ending traffic and hustle trick you into thinking that this city does not offer a good sunset.
In this article, we will be sharing with you five sunset points in Bengaluru that will leave you mesmarised!
