If interested in watching antique things & authentic Indian Maharaja family living & ruling style a must watch place.
It takes about 2 hours for visiting the entire palace. It reminds us about how rich our Indian kings were. The splendour of the palace cannot be explained , but only experienced. There are audio guides available for you so that you can understand more about the exhibits.
Remarkably well preserved considering India doesn't really put any effort into preserving its heritage at other sites.. Be sure to be there in the evening when the light it up! The palace is rather large so be prepared to walk. The camel and elephant ride were the icing on the cake.. Loved it!
Unbelivable and great treat to your eyes when you see the palace lights. But unfortunately we had not spent much time inside the palace but surely will come back here again. Highly recommeded. Dont miss it.
Shame you could not take pictures inside, it would show a series of beautiful rooms and spaces and some unique combinations between different styles and mixtures between religions. The presidential living was a hilarious attempt for a museum, but take the audio tour and try to look between the dust and dirt and you might find a good story.
This palace is absolutely beautiful. Gives us an insight into the grandeur of the days of the Wodeyars. A part of the palace is still being used by the royal family.

It is so fortunate that we have such history around us. The artefacts, painting are amazing. The durbar hall gives an insight of the grandeur around maharaja days. The dussera gallery leaves a wow Good maintenance. If it is a hot day, without footwear, jumping the palaces and temples is an experience in itself. Some planning to protect from sun... More
Residence of wodeyars, royal family of Mysore built on 14th century. The durbar hall is the main attraction and the paintings, the doors and everything else inside. Must see. This is the main attraction in Mysore. If you get a chance to visit Mysore in October time, then see the Dasara festival which is very famous (but very crowded though).
Amazing architecture - not to be missed! Didn't like having to take off shoes on a hot day (cement burned feet at end of palace tour). Big cameras need to be checked - perhaps leave it in the hotel safe if you have a valuable camera.
