The Mysore Maharaja's palace (the Wodeyar dynasty) is a do-not-miss stopover during a Mysore visit. They have a fairly detailed website that gives loads and loads of information about the palace (including a virtual tour), therefore not spending time talking about what to expect here. Things to note: (1) Prepare to walk. Lots of it. You'll be visiting the palace... More

Mysore Palace or Mysore Maharaja Palace is one of the largest and most spectacular monuments in the country. Also known as Amba Vilas, it is located in the heart of the city of Mysore. Went there by tuktuk (please ask for meter tuktuk). It is a very nicely preserved palace, very crowded. Amazing craftsmanship of interior, too bad you can't... More

Different architecture...different viewing experience...but, in many ways, actually more interesting that Taj Mahal. Certainly enjoyed surrounding city more.

The Mysore Palace, built by the Mysore Maharaj, is huge. The palace from the outside to inside has been beautifully constructed. The inside contains the personal belongings and paintings glorifying the then king of Mysore Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV, who also built the palace . The excellently done interiors (Ceilings, pillars etc. ) are something to watch out for. The... More

This is one of the fascinating historical monuments I have seen. Simply awesome and a must visit in Mysoor. It is an indication of the greatness of the old kingdom. Sadly you are not allowed to take photographs inside the palace . Please be mindful about the closing time of the palace .

Beautiful palace located in Mysore. The palace is well maintained and has a gorgeous facade. I would recommend getting a guide (rs600) or an audio guide. The marriage hall and the royal/special darbar are the highlights. Cameras are not allowed inside and there are restrooms on the premises.

Beautiful palace...even more beautiful in the evening when the lights are switched on. The Sound and Light show is very good. Many places are not open to public in the palace. Overall a great experience about the life of Kings. The best attraction of Mysore.
