About Mysore Palace, Mysore

Imposing and grand, the home of the Wodeyar Royal Family is nearly as impressive as the Taj Mahal. It also has much more to offer. The palace is a eclectic mix of Muslim, Rajput, Hindu and Gothic architecture styles. There are four main rooms; the Ambavilasa (for private audience with the King), the Doll Pavilion, the Kalyana Mantapa (the marriage hall) and the Diwaan-e-Aam (the Public Audience Chamber). In these rooms you’ll find ornately gilded columns, stained glass ceilings, decorative steel grills, chandeliers with fine floral motifs, traditional dolls, Indian and European sculpturing. Some of these were made in England and Scotand before being brogut here. Rememebre to check out the three temples outside the palace, dedicated to the Lords Shiva and Vishnu and an avatar of Vishnu.

Though it’s impressive enough in the day, the palace is magnificent during the autumn festival of Dusserah, when it’s lit up, and prominent Indian artists perform in front of it. The Palace is also illuminated on Sunday evenings and other public holidays from 7:00p.m – 7:45p.m.

Mysore Palace, Mysore Reviews

  • Must see, a beautiful part of our history, very well maintained. Wood work gifts and many more stuff which are made by the people of Mysuru. Very well maintained place with parking and food facilities. It got very crowded but the beauty of the palace compensated for everything. The paintings and work of art are very well preserved. The ceilings are exotic as well. Parking space is ample and we need to go into the palace barefoot. ನಮ್ಮ ಇತಿಹಾಸದ ಒಂದು ಸುಂದರವಾದ ಭಾಗವನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ.. ಪಾರ್ಕಿಂಗ್ ಮತ್ತು ಆಹಾರ ಸೌಕರ್ಯಗಳೊಂದಿಗೆ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ನಿರ್ವಹಿಸಲ್ಪಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದು ಬಹಳ ಕಿಕ್ಕಿರಿದ ಪ್ರದೇಶ, ಆದರೆ ಅರಮನೆಯ ಸೌಂದರ್ಯ ಎಲ್ಲವನ್ನೂ ಸರಿದೂಗಿಸುತ್ಯದೆ. ಕಲೆಯ ವರ್ಣಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಸಂರಕ್ಷಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಛಾವಣಿಗಳು ಲಕ್ಷಣವಾಗಿರುತ್ತವೆ. ಪಾರ್ಕಿಂಗ್ ಸ್ಥಳವು ಸಾಕಷ್ಟು ಇದ್ದು, ಮತ್ತು ನಾವು ಅರಮನೆಯ ಒಳಗೆ ಬರಿಗಾಲಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋಗಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ.

  • Amazing place to visit. Very beautiful green road while approaching the palace. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Earlier outside gate two many shops were there, now all removed so looking very clean and quiet. Parking is good and spacious. this place is exceptionally beautiful, with large courtyards and truly royal interiors that is uniquely Indian with a British touch. The palace is a must-see in Mysore and try to go on a Sunday evening just before 7pm when they turn on 100,000 light bulbs... Fully rich and beautiful it is!

  • Amazing place to visit. Very nicely maintained by Govt. A trip to the history.

Very beautiful green road while approaching the palace. The staff is very friendly and helpful. No photography allowed so beware.

  • Visited it twice. One for watching grand illumination of the palace on Sundays from 19.00 hrs to 19.30 hrs. It was a visual treat worth enjoying and remembering. The other trip was to see the palace from inside. Wow. Marvellous indeed to go through each of the places inside. Feels very good to be inside. It's maintenance is excellent. Any one who visits Mysore must not miss this great palace. Timings are 10 am to 5 pm on weekdays and is closed on Sunday - when illumination can be watched in the evening.

  • It's in Mysore, almost 4 hours from Bangalore...its a very huge palace which everyone must see in their life.It shows the ancient art even at that time their was 3D painting....every door n every inch of the palace is full of art it has fine sculpture. 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.
