Mysore Palace - Review

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.

  • An absolutely amazing place to visit when in Mysore. It is almost mandatory to visit the place! The palace is breathtaking, especially when the lights are on in the evening! You can never get enough of this place. The temples are historic, the history of the palace and it's occupants, the royal family is so very well documented. Every one who visits Mysore should visit the place. The security staff play beautiful songs on instruments in the evenings which are a treat for the eye and gives a feeling of royalty! Must ensure that cleanliness is maintained at all times.

  • The Mysore palace is a magnificent palace you will ever see. It is one of the largest palaces in India and indeed very beautiful as well. The palace is well structured and you will be able to see during those time how the kings attended the meetings, where they stayed and there living. The current king also stays in the palace, though he does not rule anymore but the king still prevails generation to generation. The palace looks very elegant in the night when it is lit up and can be only seen from outside. You will love the view at the night.

  • The Mysore palace is our one of the best heritage place.... Good Tourists place The Mysore palace is one of the most popular monuments in the history of India. It has a big area for the visitors to watch over. Different sections have their own importance. Highlighted. It has also has a museum showcasing various historic parts of the past. Be it uniforms, Spears, swords or old telephonic instruments. A good watch. But a big factor to be considered is the weather. It's an open air place, so if you go on a sunny day make it a point to carry your goggles and cap. Not to forget drinking water. The place is facilitated with | public washrooms and drinking water. But please choose a pleasant weather period to visit or else you'll be drenched in sweat.

  • Best place to visit during your Mysore trip. It is just majestic. Portrays the history of Mysore in the best way possible. If you want to enjoy this place then make sure that you at least have 3-4 hours to spare for this place. Kids will really enjoy visiting this place. Showcases the grandeur of the Mysore royal family. Would be better if you take along a guide for your first visit.
