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. The architectural style of the palace is an amalgamation of Muslim, Rajput, Hindu, and Gothic. This three-storeyed stone structure is surrounded by a vast expanse of well-manicured and lush gardens. It 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.

This 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 entire 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.
