Bad, worse & some more worse - this is how I can sum up my visit to this joke of a palace. The list of negatives is long for me & I would never ever recommend anyone to waste their time visitng this sham palace.
They do not allow you to footwear inside the palace!! As a result you are left to tender to your feet walking on the hot sunbathed uncovered floor outside the palace. They do not allow cameras inside which I understand as it is restricted in many places but not all. However the grouse is that this restriction is not notified anywhere prominently & we were stopped as we were about to enter the palace inside & were alreday barefoot. The place to submit your camera was around 120m from that area & in the searing heat, the sunbathed floor beckoned your feet for roasting!!
The guards were uncouth and only interested in hurrying up & scolding the visitors.
The inside of palace is nothing home to write about if you compare it with vast legacy of legendary forts & palaces in India.
Once we exited the main palace they forcibly took us towards the personal housing of royal family & their temple where there is separate fee to view it!! When we resisted & shouted to be shown the exit way, only then they reluctantly showed us the way to exit.
This place called palace is just fleecing money from tourists in form of parking fee, palace entry fee, personal royal house entrance fee, elephant ride fee etc. with no consideration for tourist comfort.

The Mysore palace is one of the most glorious and lauded pieces of architecture in India. Mysore Palace is located in the heart of the city. Mysore Palace is one of the most visited monuments in India.
