About Bengaluru Palace, Bengaluru
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.

Bengaluru Palace, Bengaluru Reviews - Write a Review
The palace is huge when you see it from outside. Once you enter, you can take audio guides to be well informed. The palace is nicely maintained. Many of the rooms are closed for public. There's paintings, few rooms with furniture for viewing, there's also photos of people back then living there. Overall, it's an average venue. Only if they had kept the huge palace rooms open for viewers to enjoy the tour more. The entry fee is a little high especially for families visiting. Outside the palace, there are a few cars, horse carriage for display but poorly maintained.
Good ambience, will feel the history of the place. Would feel u r out of Bangalore. The antiques are good. The palace is not as big as Mysore palace. It is a smaller one. The architecture is good. The plant grown attached to the building looks amazing. It has good parking place, though it will be crowded during holidays and weekends.
If u love historic building and monument then please visit this place when ever u come to Bangalore. The palace it self is a master piece of art. the palace in heart of Bangalore will take back to the royal period of our history, where you can experience life style to royal people. commoner are not allowed to go inside the palace because it is still living place of king, but u can have a look from out side. One part of palace ground is given on rent for marriage party and other family function and other is given for some professional/cultural events and functions. sometime people can also see movie shooting going on.
This palace is great. The audio narration takes the whole experience to a next level. The place is well maintained and kept clean. This was one of the best places I visited in Bengaluru. The architecture is nice inside out. I love the varandas and the way all pictures are kept just the way they are brings the whole place to life. You can actually imagine how life inside there could have been once upon a time..
Must visit if you've been in Bangalore for a long time. The Palace intrigues you, for the extent of detailing that has gone into its construction and the decoration of its walls and doors. It was one of the symbol of luxury as far as the Mysore rulers were concerned. The walls contain unique paintings that were inspired from Indian Mythology. The camera is going to be a very busy thing inside the campus as there are a lot of stuffs that deserve to be photographed. It's a perfect way to spend your weekend. The only bad thing about your experience is going to be the guards and the security inside , who behave very rudely. But other than that, the Palace experience is worth every penny.
