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.

  • It was one of the places one should go once in their lifetime. At night the lights of palace are on from Around 7 to 8 and the best part of it. Go with a good cam so that due to flash pics can be good. In the morning time u can even go inside the palace and watch all the things displayed there from the king's era. In afternoon and morning time one can see the garden also. On Sunday Eve people go their with their kids n enjoy weather, do picnic and come back with good feeling. So go there and enjoy the beauty.

  • Great Indian heritage with beauty outside and inside. Palace has its own beauty.. in day light it shines with dignity and at night it glows like a crown. This palace has a museum also where you can see old heritage and can easily relate them with the royal lifestyle of that time. Photos clicked there has its own power.. you will love getting clicked there.

  • The main palace in the city of Mysore. Need about an hour or two for a full walk through, longer with a guide. The residential wing has separate entry fee and access. You need to leave your footwear outside in convenient collection area for a minimal fee (not included in entry fee) to enter the palace. Cameras are not allowed (can be deposited in the collection area for a small fee and collected before closing time) however cell phone photography is not limited. Beautiful architecture, carved ceilings, ceremonial howdah, paintings, glass and silver chairs and other royal collections are on display.

  • It's one of the beautiful place to hang out in Mysore. Mysore palace is a wonderful historical structure. By paying 50rs , you can get the inside glimpse of palace. There are temples as well which you can visit. Mind you , as you will be amazed to see the entrance doors of these temples. Yeah they have large doors. But very few people visit the temples. Best time to visit during Saturday or Sunday during 6-7.30pm when palace will be glowing and also music will be played by police men in front of the palace. Overall nice place to spend time either alone, as a couple or with a family.
