Very well maintained palace, it almost felt like an European palace museum. No cameras allowed inside, however we can see peddlers selling selfie sticks outside and people clicking pictures with their mobiles inside!

I adored this palace, it was the only one I visited during my time in India and I wasn't disappointed. You have to check your shoes in, sacred ground means barefoot - which is actually very pleasant and cools you down from walking through the marble hallways! There is so much to see and admire, though on a busy day... More

The palace is well maintained and when lit at night provides a magnificent spectacle. A must visit for any tourist to Mysuru. Remember though that the lighting happens only on Sundays and all public holidays between 19 and 19:45.

This was built by King Krishnarajendra Wadiyar IV .Foot wear and cameras are not allowed inside the palace. Cameras can be deposited free of cost in... More

The palace was absolutely amazing and well worth the expense of a visit. From the outside the views of the amazing architecture are simply breathtaking and inside there are lots of fascinating things to see. There is a little annoying bureaucracy, as is often the case in India, but take a deep breath and then wander around and stare in... More

This palace was the seat of the Mysore Kingdom of the Wodyar dynasty from 1399 till 1947. It is a magnificent building which combines the architecture of Hindu, Islamic, Gothic and Rajput influences. It is open to the public for viewing though photography of the interiors is strictly prohibited!
