This place is amazing during the day, a tour well worth the money, but returning in the evening at 7.00 is essential to be fully wowed as all 86,000 light bulbs are switched on for half an hour. This treat is only done on a Sunday evening so planning is a must.

Nice place to visit. Still holding the heritage. It's looks awesome when they turn on the lights in the evening. Visit on Sunday to see the magnificent lighting. To save electricity bill they only turn it on Sunday evening between 7pm to 7:30pm. Other days you will only get to see the normal lighting.

This place is a gem...a rare beauty that diffuses peace and tranquility into you as you visit....the drive is the only challenge..so keep an open mind and truly allow yourself to experience every moment (otherwise it can become annoying!)

When preparing for your visit to the palace please take into consideration there are over a billion Indians, many of them you will meet there. The palace interior is astonishing. Unfortunately guards there have been told to prioritise flow so do not dare to stand still for more than a couple of seconds unless you prefer to be summoned to... More

Palace is having lots of historical view and the good place for history lovers. Must visit if you go to Mysore. Mobiles and shoe are not allowed in the Palace. They have counter for shoe. You can carry mobile but guards are in the palace for security and will not allow to take pictures. Interior of the Palace is very... More

Beautiful architecture externally. A treat to the eyes. But thought that it could be maintained much better. Needs better organisation. Have to take ideas from similar tourists spots abroad. There were elephants and camels to ride on, but really felt sad for those animals. Looked unwell and tired.

Palace is breath taking from outside. From inside it is beautiful too but could have been better if more readable information is provided on interiors and paintings.

Pretty palace. Visit on Sunday evening between seven and seven thirty to see it illuminated, locals say this is prettier than the taj.

Such a beautiful palace wasted. For all the inconvenience of removing and checking your shoes,having to check your camera (no photos), walking barefoot, you end up visiting two halls and pass through a half dozen halls with some less than spectacular displays of a few of the royal family's old possessions. Once your through with that you can pay another... More
