Easily accessible place and a good point of interest. A bit pricey tickets, but most of the palace is well maintained. The audio guide is quite good and useful. Exteriors are awesome and provide a good scope for photography. Overall it's good forFor one time visit and if you like to see heritage buildings and places.
It's a historical place for gifted to Bangalore by king. Bangalore Palace, a palace located in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, in an area owned originally by Rev. J. Garrett, who was the first Principal of the Central High School in Bangalore, now known as Central College. The beginning of the construction of the Palace is attributed to him. Rev. Garrett was an early pioneering educationist of Wesleyan Mission. He started the first press here, and printed literary works in Kannada too. His daughter married the celebrated historian, educationist and archaeologist B. L. Rice. Together, they have given us immortal works. Rice's bungalow still exists opposite to the Windsor Manor hotel and goes by the name 'Rain Tree.
Bangalore Place looks beautiful from outside. Inside nothing much too see except the rooms and their furniture. Tickets are really expensive, 230 Rs each. Also for mobile phone photo 265 Rs extra and for camera Rs 600 or so. If you do not but ticket for your cell phone and camera and caught taking picture, you will be harassed and fined. So be careful. If you are in big group, it's better to see the palace from outside and take picture. It's not worth to enter and spend so much money. It's not worth after visiting Mysore palaces and a cheaper ticket.
The palace although extremely beautiful from the rear is not all that amazing inside. The interiors are nothing out of the ordinary. The entry fee is simply notorious 240 bucks. And they give you a audio guide. But it's not worth the trouble. The garden and the exteriors of the palace are a beautiful sight although the guards out there are very rude. And never trust the auto drivers there. They either charge a kidney or just nearly too little as they will deceive you into going with them to the shops that pay them a good commission for customers.
As a one of major tourist attraction place, you can't skip this from your list. Well surroundings, nice greenery and all. But don't get the heritage feeling at all, quite a modern palace like any other big hotel. Major point please carry enough cash with you, for entry they don't accept cards or any other e payments and entry fee is quite high 240 per person and camera and all other fees.
