Kengal Hanumanthaiah is credited with the origination and development of the Vidhana Soudha. The establishment stone was laid by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru and after that main pastor K.C Reddy, on July 13, 1951. However, it was Hanumanthaiah who was instrumental in the overhaul and rapid development of Vidhana Soudha. He visited Europe, Russia, the United States, and different places and got building the Vidhana Soudha by consolidating different plans from the structures he had seen. It was finished in 1956. He required a great deal of intrigue and exertion in building this magnificent rock building. It was intended to predominate the British-fabricated Athara Kacheri (High Court) building. Hanumanthaiah was censured for the almost 15 million rupees spent to develop the building. But the building planned by him is an extraordinary structure of Neo Dravidian style. The land territory is 60 sections of land.
The Vidhana Soudha situated in Bengaluru, is the seat of the state governing body of Karnataka. It is developed in a style once in a while depicted as Mysore Neo-Dravidian, and fuses components of Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian styles. The development was finished in 1956.
