  • When we here the name Mysore we may think of it's greatness and of course the Mysore palace. Mysore Palace is a great place to visit when you are in Mysore. It's well maintained and great place to see. It's a marvelous place which says about the people who lived in there. It also contains many royal collection to see. Backside of the place is the place where the king lived . Most of the people didn't aware of that place and missed to visit it. If you go next time have a visit there also. The palace looks magnificent in the evening during the light show. Have a great time.
  • History and more stories. You really need a trained guide to take you around or you need to go alone to spend time reading each article on display. Needs better upkeep and they must open out the entire palace. The walk around is quite a bit so you need to prepare yourself to go barefoot throughout. The splendour is evident from the exterior of the building. For those who dream of luxury you could enjoy some reality of the royal luxury.
