Great place to spend time doing the audio tour. Return in the evening to see the lights for free but note that it is not lit up every night so schedule your visit to Mysure so to be sure not to miss the illumination.

Beautiful palace with great garden. The palace rooms are very interesting and provide an insight of the life at that time.

Mysore Maharaja's Palace is one of the best palaces of so many that I have ever seen. It presents a grand style and appearance and tells the story of human efforts and aesthetic sense. Spread over in a very large area, the palace astonishes the viewers for both its interiors and exteriors. The palace is very close to the City... More

On the outside not so interesting but many interesting features inside in the many rooms. A mix of multiple styles. Avoid weekends as you will feel like cattle. If you are paying the foreign ticket price the audio is included, and it is fairly informative if you are into that - but the number indicating what to hear seems well... More

The palace is well maintained and it's kept very secure with many police officials inside out. It was Sunday so it was very crowded.. it showcases rich heritage of Kings of Mysore.

Amazing palace with a good audio tour to go with it. Gets very crowded on holidays though. The place is well maintained and clean with some museums in the premises showcasing the royal jewellery, etc

The beautiful Mysore Maharaja's Palace in Mysore, I am sure, attracts almost all the tourists who spend even few hours in the city. This is the best palace museum I have seen in India. However for one reason I was greatly disappointed because photography of any kind was not allowed inside the palace, which is ridiculous. I also do not... More
