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.

  • Can be well maintained... So that people get to see the culture even after decades. Though they say photography is not allowed, everyone do take pics here without any problem. The hearing guide gives a good description of every numbered boards. Amazing!! The garden around is also beautiful.

  • Good place. There is an entry fee of 250.Not that worth as Mysore palace. For clicking the photo over the mobile they charge 300 and for the camera its 700. If you haven't taken the ticket and starts clicking outside, security will start screaming. Talking to the auto guys will be useless if you want to go back home. They will say that its the company auto and you have to visit the cloth store that they show. Otherwise they won't drive back to your place. You will have to search for the auto by going outside the palace gate. You can visit once !

  • Loved this place. But if you are going please have an hour or more to spare. The audio guided tour is fantastic but takes some time.The place is very well maintained. Had a great time there, even though by the end of it I was a bit tired from walking around so much.

  • Bangalore palace, don't go with high expectation because it is not that big has Mysore palace. This place can be covered by listening to audio in 2hrs, recorded audio brief us the spots inside the palace and the situation of the pictures that where captured during the kings era. Rs. 240/- per head is charged for entry which I personally feel on higher side. Half a day program, it requires a good maintenance to make it a much better place to visit.

  • 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
