  2. Sanjay Kini says:

    Being a Heritage city and to honour the Wadiyar’s it would have been better if they erect the statue of Maharani Kempananjammani, I would suggest that having statue of wadiyars at all circles with the same architecture of K.R.Circle ,Chamarajendra circle and Jayachamrajendra Circle will bring uniformity to the circles and being an Ivory City all Heritage buildings when painted Ivory Colour makes the city appealing to tourists and will give an old world charm.
