Got chance to be part of evening worship ceremony wherein we went around the palace. Unfortunate thing was that while there was an hour to closing time, the audio guide facility was closed stating its closing time.

A nice palace when you compare it to the ones in South India. But when you compare it to the ones in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, this one doesn't stand a chance. Nice clean architecture and a good collection of the Kings personal stuff. Well maintained.

We were lucky enough to visit on a Sunday evening when it is lit up at 7pm. Beautiful all lit up with the festive environment. We also toured during the day. Entrance for foreigners include the audio guide which gives you a good tour. Make sure you bring ID and/or a large sum of cash for the audio guide deposit.... More

Among all the heritage palaces and buildings in Mysuru , Amba Vilas the Mysore Maharaja palace stands out as the most beautiful place to visit whenever you are in Mysuru City .

I have been to this palace twice in the past & it is a decent palace with good artifacts. You can spend an hour or may be even more but i would suggest to avoid visiting this place on a weekend or public holidays as it can become really crowded. If in Mysore for first time then a must visit... More
