No visit to Mysore is complete without seeing this. It should be viewed during the day in full light and again in the evening when lit up. Timings for this vary so check online before planning.

This visit was in continuation after Coorg and after first look at the palace my reaction was “wows”. Amazing big palace, amazing maintenance done by the caretakers. Except toilet section for males, everything at the palace area was superb.
