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 - Write a Review
Beautiful palace. If you are interested to know the history & about kings and their life. You should definitely go there. But remember one thing, you can't take photos from inside of palace. They don't allow it. There is extra charges to take a photo. But this is worth going. You should go once.
Great historic place. If u r interested in knowing the history, and fascinated about the king's life and their life style, then this place might be very interesting to you. If you are just a casual visitor, and not interested in all those I mentioned above u better not visit and waste your time. The palace has some of items used by the king's for display, and most of the rooms, including assembly, and some of the office rooms are open to display, What to expect to see: the assembly, the nice paintings, the marble work, majestic sculptures, gigantic doors and hallways. Try to take photos as much as possible, every photo comes out very nice. Get a low light camera to get best shots.
This marvellous architectural creation speaks of the glory of the empire once existed. This is a magnificent piece of art. Huge and beautiful. Each and every piece has been carved with cent percent accuracy. It gives pleasure watching this fabulous structure. The real beauty is watching this magnificent structure illuminated with lights in the evening.
Went to Mysore Palace while I was on a visit to Banglore. Found it to be a very interesting experience. To make the most I would recommend engaging the services of one of the local guides as their commentary adds significant insight to your walk through. Be warned shoes need to be removed at "checked in" at the shoe counter before entry as no footwear is permitted. The artwork, mix of architectural styles both combined with the narrative from the guide made it an interesting visit. Crowd management can be done more efficiently.
The palace is really good. The process of storing shoes should be improved and the crowd at this place be better managed. Inside the palace at some places the passage is very narrow where more people at one time get stuck. There should be some security personnel to manage these places. There are Elephant and Camel rides available inside for 90 rupees per person (Elephant ), that is good attraction for kids. We as a family took the elephant ride first time and it was an adventure for me. Inside only cash is accepted, so make sure you have enough cash, as there are no ATMs inside the palace arena. Drinking water is available. Overall a good place to visit and spend couple of hours.
