It shows our ancient art, taste of people of that era. It represents the pride of our nation India.Photography is strictly prohibited. So when you go never try to take photographs. It has huge punishment. Cameras are not allowed at all but we can carry mobiles. There are charges associated to visit it. It's a Lovely place which makes us feel like kings n queens.
Very well decorated place. We were lucky enough to see a Royal wedding taking place there.....the palace was so grand that I couldn't stop gazing it. I liked the staff who helped with the tickets and hearing gadgets issue. By paying around Rs. 250/person we got to see the palace along with description of each nook and corner of it through the headphones that were provided. There was ample space for parking and the area surrounding the palace was also huge. Kids can enjoy a lot as there was elephant decoration at the entrance.
One of the must visit places in Bangalore. The palace is magnificent and well maintained. First you need to buy a ticket on your left. For a single Indian it is ₹ 240. If you want to carry camera you have to pay extra. You can grab an audio guide free of cost by submitting any ID. The ID will be returned one you return the audio guide. The guide is great. You just have to key in the number displayed at various places and the guide explains to you what you are watching. It is configurable in different languages. The palace houses different royal halls, court rooms and rooms where the people of the royal family stayed. There are beautiful paintings and photographs hanging on the walls. Artifacts, fountains and pools explain the lifestyle of the royal family. It might take an hour or two to view the entire palace. There are clean rest rooms available for the visitors use. The palace also has a beautifully maintained garden in front of it where various private and public functions are organised.
The one of the best historic places in the Bangalore .the place provides free parking. Space and the place secures it's own calmness with a great historic value. The ticket price is 240 per person. The main palace has a superb architecture design which will easily attract you .it is also a great visiting place for foreigners.please take care of this restaurant
Ensure you have ID with you. Very impressive building particularly the exterior and the grounds. The audio tour commentary is very informative and free to use. The interior is full of interesting artifacts and fascinating stories. Well worth a visit for an hour or two
