The ‘Cultural Capital of Karnataka’ calls you with its arms wide open, to explore the rustic city with its old world charm. Wondering what experiences does Mysore has to offer?

Well, it has many up its sleeve and they are sure to mesmerize you. The city is known for its aesthetically built majestic palaces, thus, the first on our list is the view of the famous Mysore Palace at night when its illuminated. On Sundays and holidays, the Palace is lit with thousands of bulbs at around 6:30 pm. The sight is truly spectacular to behold. 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 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.

Another memorable experience will be of the rare flora and fauna seen at the various wildlife parks and sanctuaries in Mysore. Elephant lovers will love it in here. You can spot the large beasts walking in a perfect queue with the matriarch in the lead, or simply hanging around natural watering holes. A particular enjoyable sight is to watch the young ones romping about. Apart from elephants, there are a lot of bisons and deer. These are easily spotted. The rest of the fauna is much more elusive. There is an amazing variety of birds in these jungles, so carry your binoculars with your camera. The animals tend to come out on the roads sometimes.

Keep a lookout to prevent any possible road kill. And don’t make any noise or try to approach them. You never know what a spooked animal may do.
