The royal city, known for its various trysts with different dynasties. A curious mix of tradition and modernity, Mysore is an upcoming IT and industry hub in the midst of grand architecture and its long-standing cultural heritage.

Mysore is fabled to have been come into existence after the goddess Chamundi slayed the vicious demon, Mahishasura. The famed home to Tipu Sultan, Mysore is a city replete with royalty and regalia. Largely governed, and efficiently so, by the Wodeyar dynasty, it also saw rulers in Hyder Ali and his son, Tipu Sultan. The rule of these dynasties is visible today in the various architectures and ornate temples around the city. Tourists must visit the Mysore City Palace, especially during the night to see its twinkling lights. The festival of Dussehra is celebrated with unique grandeur and excitement, with processions of decorated elephants, horses, and camels. Mysore is popular for its unique style of painting, that uses plaster of Paris and the beautiful silk sarees. Among the main attractions of Mysore is counted the Mysore Zoo. It was established in the year 1892 and has two main recreational spots namely Kukkarahalli and Karanji lakes. To get an insight into the rich heritage of this region, do visit the various museums dotted all across the region. Some of the famous museums of this city include Regional Museum of Natural History, the Railway Museum and the Folk Lore Museum.  This city with a plethora of attractions offers an entertainment package for people of all age groups.

From ‘Pakeezah’ to ‘Raja Hindustani’, Mysore has never failed to capture its royalty and natural beauty in the backdrop of the movies. It is hard to believe that the reel life could capture the real essence in such a natural way. The song ‘Kitna Pyaara Tujhe’ of Raja Hindustani was shot in the backdrop of Balmuri Falls. The royalness of the Lalitha Mahal Palace has been captured in movies like Deewana (1992) and Mard (1985).

Mysore is an inspired mosaic of ornate palaces, gardens, boulevards and markets, the legacy left by the Wodeyar kings. So rich is this legacy that it inspired the works of Kannada’s greatest writers, from Kuvempu to UR Ananthamurthy and English’s most durable one, RK Narayan. From the Clock Tower to the station to schoolboys with satchels gawking at the big cats in Mysore Zoo, everywhere you will see the magic of Malgudi come alive. For Malgudi, too, was made in Mysore. Reaching this destination is easy as it is well connected through railways and roadways.
