A very nice and clean palace. I have not seen many palaces maintained so well. This is a nice palace to visit with family and kids.

Ok to visit once on your first visit to Mysore. Extravagant display of collections of maharajah. Lot of paintings and items kept at a distance and cannot be properly viewed. Be ready to walk a lot, if you are going with senior citizens.

Dive into the posh history of the Mysore maharaajas. The place becomes even more beautiful when lit up in evenings on holidays and weekends.

I was enthralled to see this majestic Amba Vilas Palace in Mysore. There is a history attached to this Palace which sets one back in the past. Then the grandeur of the Palace takes the attention to the old Raj era. However, it is prudent to take a guide otherwise chances are that one may miss the finer points. I... More

I am a person who loves to see monuments and sculptures. Mysore Palace is a 'must-see' destination for visitors to Mysore. You get a lot of information about the past of our country.

If you're in Mysore, don't miss visiting this grand Palace. It's a couple of hours well spent. Have a peek at the lives of the Maharajas of long past.
