Don't miss the view of this palace in a day and night too. At sunday it lit with lights and the folk singers playing soft music for that 45 minutes and move the atmosphere completely. Awesome experience

impressive building, though interior decor a bit too much, for me anyway. Walking around and people watching, ladies in their colourful saris, not to forget camel and elephant for chuldren rides.

Whether you have a little bit of time or a lot of time in Mysore, this place is definitely worth visiting. Hard to believe it is only a little over 100 years old but the building is a testament to amazing craftsmanship and provides an insight into a different time and a different world. Our kids really enjoyed it too... More

One of the best palaces I have ever visited till date. Example of great architecture. Very well maintained. Paintings kept in the palace appear as if made yesterday. This is a very photogenic place. The only thing I did not like was the elephant ride because it makes the place dirty.
