The Vikasa Soudha is a large monumental building that is known to be inspired from the more popular Vidhana Soudha. Located on Ambedkar Road, this structure was a dream of the former Chief Minister Dr. S. M. Krishna. The gray colored building was built to offload a few activities from the main administrative headquarters, the Vidhana Soudha. Eventually, many of the offices were shifted into this new building. The Vikasa Soudha possesses some interesting amenities like solar power and rainwater harvesting, which the older building lacks. The stones for creating the structure were taken from various granite pits in Karnataka. The huge premises are replete with halls, conference rooms, and vital government offices.

The Vidhana Soudha houses the state legislature of Karnataka, its architecture is a vivid amalgam of the old and the new. Envisioned by Shri Kengal Hanumanthaiah, the former Chief Minister of Mysore, the glorious facade of this building is a fusion of Indo-Saracenic and traditional Dravidian styles, ornamented by a gleaming central dome, granite columns and an expansive porch. The stately building also features considerable European influences in its design. With the tricolor fluttering above it, this courtly edifice is fronted by well-manicured lawns, as well as sculptures that command much national significance. Beautifully illuminated each Sunday and on public holidays, the Vidhana Soudha is Bengaluru's pride and one of the nation's largest legislative buildings.
