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.

This is the Palace of Ruler of Mysore their residence place. The architectural style of domes, arch, rooms are awesome. This place is surrounded by large garden. Only one time visit this place is for. Not liked much as all are modern amenities. You will find it more like 5 start hotel. At some part they have tried to retain the older architecture but not easily visible as you will overlook by new modern days architecture. There is entrance ticket also for this. No video or photography is allowed inside. It is strictly prohibited. You need to remove your shoes for visiting this Palace. Timing are 10.00am to 5.30Pm
Beautiful palace.. a good vast area of land has been kept separated around the palace. There are more temples also surrounding the palace. Mysore has been fully decorated with lights during dasara time. You need to see the palace decorated with lights and it will be awesome. There will be a classical dance program also during this time.
Mysore Palace is a must see place. I had seen the palace in 1978 while studying in St. Philomena's college. After ~39 years, have revisited the Palace and enjoyed the visit with my family. The palace is maintained well and the entry fee is very reasonable.
It's historic and still so beautiful. It's very well maintained. The evening view is simply amazing when the whole building including the gates lit up. The entry fee is very reasonable. No cameras allowed inside the building. Inside the building you will get to know lot of history of the Mysore kings. The palace is iconic and is one of the face of Karnataka.
A beautiful place. A visit during holidays wont help you enjoy the beauty of this place as it will be crowded. Police and security personnel are not at all helpful nor are they serious about their duties. There is only one entrance with only one metal detector. Visitors will have to scramble through this single entrance. No queue system is followed. You can see police men and women near the entrance and baggage scanners. But none of them would take it as a serious job. There is a footwear counter near the palace entrance which is another eyesore. Visitors will have to struggle to keep the footwear safe there.
