There are entrances on the east, west, north and south sides and tall carved pillars give the building a special luster. There are also eye-catching towers at the top of the building.

An ashoka pillar is also installed between the chittaras on the top of the main tower. The towers contain Indo-Islamic elements and a smaller tower is built at the four corners to relate to the rest of the building.

Attention has been paid to ensure that there is enough air and light in the interior of the rectangular building. The wide corridor is also an attraction here.

Balconies have Rajasthani style glazing. The grandeur of the building has been enhanced by keeping the original form of the stones brought from Bettahalasur without any coating of colors.

Hunsur teak is used for the doors and windows of the Methodist Church. The carving in them, the polished glaze given to them are attracting everyone’s attention.

The special feature of the building is that both the Government Ministry and the Legislature are on the same side. No other state has such a system. The Methodist Church is about 700 feet long and 350 feet wide and has a total of four floors.

On the first floor, there are Assembly and Vidhan Parishad halls which are spacious. Another peculiarity is that there is no pillar in the center of this large hall.

Each floor has forty to forty five rooms and the 3rd floor has a cabinet hall and a conference hall.

The Vidhana Soudha is a building where the Legislative Assembly of Karnataka is held. It was built during the administration of former Chief Minister Kengal Hanumanthaiah. On July 13, 1951, the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation stone for Vidhana Soudha. The construction work started in 1952 and took four years to complete. More than 5000 workers were involved in the construction of this building. Manikyam, who was a chief engineer and architect in the state public works department, was in charge of the construction of the building. Its architecture is called Mysore Dravidian style by some.[2] The architecture of this building features several elements of the Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian style. [3] According to the Gazette of Karnataka, the cost of constructing the Methodist Church was ₹ 1.75 crore.
