While the traffic was bad and took us a long time to reach, it was totally worth it. The palace was completely lit up and looked really beautiful.Lovely musical evening. The elephant parade was a nice attraction.

We wondered seeing it in evening at 7pm in dasera festival and the parade was very impressive.we was happy because the city was also clean and total city was decorated for the festival.so i prefer to all my review readers to visit in desara festival only.

First of all , be there couple of hours before 5:30, if u want to enjoy the whole palace inside out.... We were there post 6, so missed seeing the inside of the place...but since it was a Sunday, we were lucky to witness the illumination which decorates the whole vicinity of the place. Take the ride to see the... More

The palace is good. The view is great specially when it is lit on public holiday. The audio video guide is not worth it

The palace helps us understand the cultural heritage of mysuru. Simply amazing. A view into the lives of maharaja's of mysuru and how their faith in god and a very intersting history of the palace , makes this a must visit for every traveller

Went to the palace one evening with family. The palace is maintained reasonably well & one can see a lot of things here. You have some shops also that sell traditional goods. Must visit when in Mysore

Being a Mysurean, I love the palace, be it for its grand architecture, the interiors, paintings or the lighting at night. This is a must visit place if you ever visit mysore. Especially during world famous Dasara festival, it is a treat to visit the palace. The world famous golden throne is open for public view only during Dasara festival.... More
