A must visit if you in Mysore or Bangalore (one day trip from Bangalore). Nice architecture portraying the life style of Maharajas, outer appearance good. Building reasonably well kept. Room in which maharaja's furnisher was exhibited is clean but exhibits of clothes worn by Maharaja's and other assorted items are dusty. They have not cleaned the display cases for ages.... More

Very good architecture. Big palace, need more time to visit around. Old people might find difficult to walk around. If you're visiting during hot summer, carry sufficient water with you.

The palace shining with the 1 lakh bulbs, that's a view you might not want to miss. There a loads of picture I have taken in... More
