Freedom park near Sheshadri Road is one more addition to the list of parks in garden city of Bangalore. Here are some of the snaps I took when I visited the place.
Freedom Park Entrance, Sheshadri Road, BangaloreBangalore Central Jail which is now converted into Freedom park was built in 1866 by the British. It occupied a site of approximately 21 acres. The jail has housed many illustrious leaders who fought for the freedom of our nation and for restoration of democracy during the emergency regime post independence. The jail compound included a watch tower in the center, barracks and other buildings like the hospitals, workshops etc.
