A symbolic representation of the city itself, a trip to Mysore is totally lost without paying this palace a visit.

ABOUT Mysore Palace
Also known as ‘Amba Vilas Palace’, Mysore Palace is located in the heart of Mysore and is the official residence of the Wodeyars (erstwhile royal family of Mysore). This remarkable palace is one of the most famous tourist attractions in India, second only to the enchanting Taj Mahal (Agra). The architecture of the palace is an amalgamation of Muslim, Rajput, Hindu and Gothic styles of architecture. This three-storeyed stone structure is surrounded by a vast expanse of well-manicured and lush gardens. The beautiful building was designed by Henry Irwin, using fine gray granite and deep pink marble (for domes). The Mysore Palace houses many exquisite carvings and works of art from all over the world, and thus, has been converted into a museum for public viewing.

Mysore Palace is illuminated on Sunday nights and holidays with thousands of bulbs which shimmer against the inky black night, presenting one of the most enduring images of the city. Even though you cannot enter the palace, you can go in the gardens and enjoy this beautiful show. The illuminated Palace is a truly magnificent sight, and worth planning your trip around. To enjoy the beautiful view do remember to arrive a little early to settle at a vantage position. The best part about it is that the Mysore Palace is lit in one stroke, rather than in parts. So, arrive before the palace is about to be illuminated to feel the real charm.

Mysore city is at 770m above sea level and 140 kms from Bangalore. Also known as the City of Palaces, Mysore retains a quaint charm, that never fails to enchant. Situated in the southern part of the Deccan Plateau, Mysore District is an undulating tableland, covered in parts by granite outcrops and fringed by verdant forests. From ancient times, this district has played a significant role in the history of South India. Mysore District is a popular tourist destination, offering several attractions ranging from the royal splendour of Mysore City and its fabulous Dasara Festival to exquisite temples, pilgrimage centres and scenic spots.
