    Nice one! A couple of things I wanted to point out. Cubbon Park was laid out in 1864 not 1870. The bandstand was not built in the 1920s but existed even in 1870. And though Attara Kacheri became the office of Mysore administration in 1868, the Mysore administration moved to Bangalore long before this – their offices were earlier housed in Tipu’s Palace near the Fort and in assorted houses in that area.
