There is also a very big wooden procession chariot and I have to say that this was the first place where I... More

On our visit the palace was under maintenance. The walls of the palace have beautiful paintings of Tipu etc. Not a big palace and not much to see around in the area.

Take a tour of Mysore first, and at the very end, climb with your driver up here to see the city you have beem strolling into from a different perspective. It is a very calm and sacred place, a must see for everyone.

Situated in Srirangapatna about 10 kms from Mysore is this ancient temple of Sri Rangnath Swamy (Lord Vishnu) which as per the priest is around 1300 years old. The outside view and structure of the temple is great which is built on the South Indian style and once you enter the temple you yourself can visualise how old the temple... More

A short trip to Srirangapatna is a must. We went around to the underground jail where British officers were said to be imprisoned till chest high water from nearby Kaveri river and other place around this place. A guide would be quite helpful to provide some insight into the various locations. 2-3 hours should be enough for this visit.
