Its huge and very well maintained palace. Even the lush green gardens are very well kept. Must visit if you're in Mysore.

Must-see attraction in Mysore. This palace is an architectural grandeur. The palace and its gardens are very well maintained. It will take at least 2 hours to see the main building. Additional time is needed to see small surrounding buildings, to ride camels and elephants, and for shopping in the souvenir shops. This majestic palace is not to be missed.

A well maintained palace of the maharajah of mysore. Worth a look especially when lit up in the evening. However, better facilities for tourists in terms of adequate shoe racks, audio aids , wash rooms, water points would enhance the experience!

This was an exhilarating experience because of the sheer class of the Art & Architecture found inside this palace. This palace is very different when compared to other famous palaces of the country, be it the Umaid Bhawan of Jodhpur or the Chaumahalla Palace of the Nizam of Hyderabad. The paintings and murals on the walls, the glass-works, sculptures and... More
