Great place for a family outing. Stay back for the light and sound show. Those who are interested in history of South India, the artifacts are very important.

This was my second visit to the Mysore palace and was disappointed to find that many parts of the palace that were previously available to visitors are now restricted. Nonetheless, the charm and the old-world magic are intact in the artifacts, furniture, photos and belongings of the royal family. Worth a visit to understand the history of the city. Takes... More

Huge building, but only limited rooms open for visit. Some of these are stunning with colorful architecture. Cost is 200 rupees for foreigners. You get an audio tour set with the ticket. Allow about 45 minutes for inside tour. Do it if you're in Mysore, but not a must see requiring a detour.

As this will enable to see the palace as well as the Light Show in the evening. By 6.30pm the Palace light starts to low but... More

The accessibility to nearly half of the palace was cut out for general public when I visited. Got to know that there's a lot more but now visitors aren't allowed to venture into those areas. The artifacts and history is intriguing. Your visit will be worth the time and money if you can catch a glimpse of the illuminated palace... More

This is a beautiful and huge palace. It has an amazing architecture both inside and outside. Lots of places to take pictures. There is a beautiful park outside. Visit late in the afternoon and hang around to see the palace lit up at 730 for just an hour. The palace looks amazing when lit at night!
