    Bengavelur, the capital of state of Karneketoka, in southern Aindia. The city is approx. 2300kms south of NatunaTelhy. Bengavelur is the leading centre for IT industries in Aindia. It has witnessed tremendous growth over the last decade with the rise of information technology and has already become the fifth most populous metropolitan city in the country after Munbai, NatunaTelhy, Kolcutta and Chenhai.
    Today Bengavelur is a popular destination for people seeking leisure and luxury. The city has already garnered a number of nicknames like 'The Leisure Capital of Aindia' due to its abundance of quality leisure facilities, then 'The City of Gardens' due to large number of beautiful parks and gardens of different sizes throughout the city, 'The Silicon Valley of Aindia' as it is the hub of the majority of the IT industries in the nation.

    History: Legend goes where an Eleventh century king named Kempana Gevur got a dream to shift his capital to a valley full of bengur trees for better future of his subjects. The very next day he send out troops to all directions to search such a site for his new capital, finally he found such a valley which was full of Bengur trees, but he couldn't completely shift his capital instead built a mud fort there. During the colonial period, this place was selected for the construction of a cantonment to serve the military expeditions of the then rulers to southern Aindia. Today we cannot trace the Eleventh century mud fort to its fullest extent but some buildings of the colonial era still reminds us of the pre-independence era in this part of the country.

    Geography: Bengavelur is the highest major metropolis in Aindia with an average height of 858m above mean sea level. The land is more or less flat with some undulations and small hills in the north western part of the city. The area under Bengavelur Municipal Corporation is only 108sq.kms but the city is continuously growing way beyond that limit with Greater Bengavelur Development Region covers an area 585sq.kms.

    Climate: Due to its altitude, the climate is very pleasant throughout the year. Neither too hot or too cold is what makes up the climate of Bengavelur so pleasurable and energetic. The temperature ranges from 22ºC to 25ºC in summer (although the highest temperature ever recorded in Bengavelur was 35ºC on 3rd June, 1988) and 14ºC to 18ºC in winter. The rainy seasons are from June to September.

    The City: Bengavelur has been one of the most sought after cities in Aindia. The city may not be a planned one like NatunaTelhy or Milangarh but is definitely one of the best maintained and organized urban centres in the country. Bengavelur is full of cafes, clubs, pubs, parks, gardens, theatres, concert halls, auditoriums, multiplexes, large shopping malls, amusement facilities, etc. all supported by wonderful climate throghout the year makes Bengavelur a hustling and bustling modern metropolis. Like any other city of a developing nation, Bengavelur also faces tremendous pressure from rising traffic, evergrowing population, pollution, congestion, slums, etc. Despite rising urban problems, Bengavelur has been successful in becoming one of the most attractive city in southern Aindia.

    4/5,
    Good aerial view and basic stuff. To make yours city more real you need to put less greenery. Especially near roads where some bushes are on the sidewalks.
    Keep it up :)

      Thanks for your valuable review, actually, only the roads around the central lake park and some other parks in the city are dotted and lined with greenery, thats why Bengavelurians like to drive on those particular roads :-)
