Bengaluru Palace - Review
Built by Rev. Garrett, the first Principal of the Central High School in Bengaluru, it was bought by Chamarajendra Wodeyar in the year 1873. Built in Tudor-style architecture, it is adorned with magnificent woodcarvings. The palace holds resemblance to the medieval castles that were built in Normandy and England. Once surrounded by beautiful gardens, the palace has now not what it used to be. But, it still succeeds in attracting tourists. Gothic windows, Fortified towers, Battlements and Turrets lend a great degree of magnificence to the Bengaluru Palace. Mainly constructed of wood, it features splendid carvings and paintings.
Once the residence of the Wodeyars, it now serves as the venue for various concerts, exhibitions and cultural programs held in the city. The palace has a massive open square courtyard with granite seats (decorated with fluorescent blue ceramic tiles), a ballroom, The Durbar Hall along with a number of paintings of Raja Ravi Varma, a dining table of the Diwan of Mysore, Sir Mirza Ismail, A Chair to weigh Jockeys and Coat Of Arms among the others.

Bengaluru Palace, Bengaluru Reviews
Bangalore Palace is great. It is a wonderful palace. When you enter inside, They give you audio system in a mobile . You visit different locations according to the suggestion of automatic audio guide system. Your audio guide will guide you and describe every room in details. Ambiance is charismatic, energetic and full of enthusiasm. I have shared some romantic photograph. You might like them.
It's a mandatory place... It's cool tourist location but it's Over Hyped Place is HUGE but there isn't nothing super special about the palace, except for history of it. Much say the architecture is awesome at some areas within the palace. Had there been some more interesting displays except the walls it would had been nicer. All the palace is damaged with artificial lights. The best part photography is allowed and we had great shots of the palace. Had a good time walking around for hours.
Staff are like spy here. If you haven't bought camera ticket, dont click any pic. Else spies will catch you and will take to ticket counter. Not so well maintained but good to go once. Audio sound is good and will provide valuable information. You will get nothing to eat in entire compound of kilometers at least. Better take some food and go. All the best..
It is nice place to visit with your family in weekend. But entry charges very high and that palace not that much big.only half an hour take to visit that palace. But outside palace walls looks beautiful. If you're in Bangalore definitely u have to once visit that palace.
I must say, it's awesome experience. They have very nice arrangement for brief explanation for its history. They will provide one equipment with headphones where u will get recorded history of this palace. So, there will no need of any guide. It's ticket charges is 240₹ for indian visitor each. This place is full of photos
