The beautiful city of Mysore is truly a unique with its rich heritage and rustic charm. A visit here will always be a memorable one, but do keep in mind the following tips and guidelines for a smooth and hassle free vacation.


Mysore offers you all kinds of hotels and guest houses for accommodation to suit every budget but book beforehand if you wish to visit during the peak season which is the winter months from October to March.

See and Do

  • Remember to enquire about the Darshan and Aarti timings of the temples in Mysore. Dress discreetly at all the religious destinations.

  • Take care of the timings in the Palaces, Zoos and Museums and do not click pictures if photography is prohibited.

  • In Mysore, eco-tourism is more than a catch phrase to mean outdoor adventure travel, so remember to follow measures such as carrying out or disposal of garbage, not to litter especially when you visit the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries in Mysore.


  • Carry enough light woollens if you go during winters and light cottons for summers.  

  • Carry some basic medicine and keep emergency contacts handy.

  • Avoid carrying valuables or money more than the actual requirements while traveling.

  • Do not exchange currencies with individuals as there are many touts who have cheated foreign tourists by promising to pay more than the exchange value. So, exchange currencies from Government Authorized Money vendors at airports or from hotels where you stay and remember to ask for a receipt of the exchange transaction.

  • Keep the emergency numbers handy, Police (100), Ambulance (102) & Traffic Police (103). These numbers are free of cost and can prove to be of great in need.  

Keeping in mind these tips will ensure you a safe and comfortable vacation. We hope you have a wonderful trip to Mysore.
