One Plus India had organised a photography walk and I too joined many photographers and photography enthusiasts to stroll around Cubbon Park and capture moments on your One Plus mobile. Sadly, I do not own the mobile now as I lost it. But, here are some photos captured on my One Plus mobile.
The Cubbon Park has a history of over 100 years. It was established in the year 1870 by Sri John Meade, the then acting Commissioner of Mysore. The vast landscape of the park was conceived by Major General Richard Sankey, the then Chief Engineer of the State. As a mark of honour to Sri John Meade, the park was initially named as “Meade’s Park” and subsequently it was called the Cubbon Park. Since the inception of the park, it was developed and improved by adding new structures and features. In the year 1927, the park was officially renamed as “Sri. Chamarajendra Park” to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of Sri. Krishnaraja Wodeyar’s rule in Mysore State.
Located in the heart of the city, the Cubbon Park’s accessible from M.G. Road, Kasturba road, Hudson Circle, and Ambedkar Veedhi. Many motorable roads running through the park make vehicular movement easy. Only light motor vehicles are allowed through the park. Many walking lanes crisscross the park area making all the locations accessible.
Cubbon Park is a public park with many Government organizations, associations and clubs in its locale. The park is open all the time. It has been declared a silent zone between 5.00 a.m. to 8.00 a.m.
