National Institute of Advanced Studies
Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Campus
NIAS is located in the northwest corner of the IISc campus. The NIAS main gate is located next to the back arch (not the front gate) of the Ramaiah College complex, which is the best landmark to reach here. One can also reach NIAS using any of the entrances of IISc.
If you are coming from town (MG Rd etc), go north on Bellary Road up to Mekhri Circle, take a left there on to CV Raman Road. (If you are coming from Jayamahal Road you will go straight at Mekhri Circle, if coming from the airport direction, it's a right turn.) Continue down that road to the second signal, which is at CNR Rao Circle. The Main Gate of the IISc campus is on your right (sharp right).
Easiest way to approach NIAS from other directions could be tell the driver that you want to go to Mathikere; once in the general neighbourhood you can ask for NIAS.
From MG Road it should take about 40 minutes to reach the campus.
