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.

It's awesome...It's a must visit place. We can feel different ambience in day and night time. It's a classic demonstration for the ancient era. We will feel proud to see the ancient architecture and construction. External lights of palace will be lighted up on all sundays 7-8P.M. It's really amazing. Should not miss it. Normal visiting time will be 10 A.M. to 5.30 P.M. on all days.
Awesome place. Lighting will be good. Preferred time is evening so that you can enjoy the real beauty. Camera is restricted inside the palace. You can switch off your mobile and keep with you. Outside shops are good but you should negotiate better for best price.
Can be called as best kept palace in India. Everything intact. Very beautiful and shows lavish life style of kings in those days. Wooden work is remarkable. Can go there at any time of the day and will provide respite from heat outside. Great place to spend some time and have photos
The opulence, richness and grandiosity of the place would make anyone feel insignificant. It is as if history is coming back to life, to get a slice of what life was like back in those days. The palace is well maintained and cleaned. We went during Diwali when the whole of Mysore city is alight with celebrations and decorations. One of the best historical monuments to visit.
