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
If you've been to a castle in Europe, you are not missing anything. It had a helpful guided tour that fills you in on local history, which was helpful, but I didn't see any printed guides or books. However, there was a wedding happening (which was really beautiful and exciting to see). If you're in Bangalore for an extended period it's worth seeing, but not worth making it a destination on its own if part of a larger journey.
Well maintained, small yet beautiful palace. Restrooms are also available inside the palace(at the beginning of the tour). It is an audio guided tour in multiple Indian and foreign languages provided through an audio device. Please ensure to purchase a ticket for the tour before taking any photographs. Don't miss the Cannons and to take a stroll in the Garden on the outside. Beware of a lot of stray dogs that roam around freely
Entry fees us very high ₹240 per head. Compared to the fees there is nothing for display inside. Poor maintenance in some parts of palace. No provision of drinking water during the palace tour. Also the place garden us in shabby state, with broken bench. No palace to sit in the garden except a bench near the stairs leading to the garden. Clear state of negligence and poor maintenance. I wonder what they do with the entry fees ????
Makes for a nice 2-3 hour outing provided you take a guide who can explain aspects of the palace. The palace itself is a great mix of architectural styles including Tudor, Moroccan and of course Indian. The fact that the Wadiyar royal family still have their private residence within the palace makes the place all the more alive. The exterior Tudor style is a stunning replica of Windsor palace and makes for some great snaps!
The low rating is because of the entry ticket price. It is ₹240 per head for Indians. They will give an audio guide of different languages. Uaing this we can go to all the 21 locations in the balance and listen to the story behind each of it. But in the last 2 times I went at least 3 places were closed for maintenance. The fort is of not very big size. But it is beautiful for the pictures.
