Tourist Places in Whitefield

Whitefield was started as a neighbourhood for the Anglo Indians and the Eurasians in the late 1800s. It was named after D.S White, who was the founder of the European and Anglo Indian Association. This association received 4,000 acres of land from Mysore Maharaja Chamaraja Wodeyar during the latter part of the 18th century.
