The Richmond Circle is a very important point of Bangalore and  has been so for many years,named after the city of Richmond in England and the English elite lived around this place and in the past there were many victorian style structures and houses some of them are seen even today.Many key roads empty themselves into the Richmond Circle..the Richmond Road, the Lavelle Road,the Residency road and the double road or the Kengal Hanumanthaiah road from lalbagh.

Not many would beleive that there was a large circle here in the 1970's which was demolished and traffic lights placed responding to the growth in population.Though this point is still called Richmond circle the circle is non-existent.

Some of the key installations around this point are Kanteeriva stadium, Lalbagh and even M G Road.The City Market and Subhash Nagar are close to this place.
