Amazing architecture, great colours and a must see if you are in Mysore. They also light it up at night times for a brief period using 90'000 light bubs and that is truly spectacular. You cant take photos inside the palace which is slightly annoying (and finding a decent postcard of the interior was impossible) but that shouldn't detract from... More

Shows rich architecture skills that India had and one of the most beautiful palaces in INdia. Felt maintenance was lacking and government only concerned about revenue from palace and least interested in maintain it. Kudos to architect who planned and implemented, modern architects and engineers with so much advanced equipment's also cant plan.

The palace, in its truest sense, is regal. It has been beautifully maintained. Visitors are required to tour the palace bare feet through a properly decided route. Recordings which brief the history of the palace are available for foreign tourists who are not proficient with the English language as well as Kannada (local language of Karnataka). Camel and elephant rides... More

It will be around 45 minutes of informative tour which would help you understand the place better. You would to remove your footwear before entering the palace. The paintings,... More
