Owner description: The Bangalore Palace was the private residence of the royal Wodeyar family. Built to resemble Windsor Castle, this quirky palace is filled with an interesting and eclectic collection of art and paraphernalia from a bygone era. The palace grounds are a popular venue for rock concerts and other music events.

“Good for a short walk”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

It is nothing compared to Mysore Palace, but Bangalore palace has its own treasures like tiled floors, paintings and a quiet environment to stroll through

“Go frequently!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

I visited this twice in my 3 weeks in Bengaluru. Once to tour the palace -- do pay for the audio tour and the right to take photographs (it photos beautifully even with a point and click) -- and once when I was nannying another guest's two young children. For the latter, we did not tour the palace, but watched the band!, and the drummers were gracious enough to allow the children visiting to play the drums!, do the buggy ride, and run through the gardens. It's beautiful. I will definately go back. The fountain was a bit dank and stinky, but photographs well.

“Expensive and not worth too”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I just visited this Palace. They have increased the Entry fee to 225/- per head. They are providing Audio guide, instead of that they can put tags everywhere to read. No proper maintenance, full dust and bad smell. Personally i feel its expensive and not worth too.

“Feast Your Eyes!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Since i'm a an of the kingdom and palace thing, i like this place.

The fact that they offer audio guides for you to better know about the palace, is great. It helps a lot. I didn't want to have the audio guide with me so i could concentrate feeding my eyes with the beautiful interior. It's your choice.

I had visited Mysore palace before because this Bangalore palace is the guest house for the royal kingdom. So i kinda understad the images inside.

Noted that: the entry is Rs450 for non-india tourist. You can get the audio guide after you put your passport/ ID even cellphone, and put Rs2000 as a deposit. They'll return it after you give back the audio guide. And Rs20 if you want to get a picture.

Enjoy!
