Mysore Palace

The Mysore Palace, officially known as Mysuru Palace, is a historical palace and the royal residence at Mysore in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is the official residence of the Wadiyar dynasty and the seat of the Kingdom of Mysore. The palace is in the centre of Mysore, and faces the Chamundi Hills eastward. Mysore is commonly described as the 'City of Palaces', and there are seven palaces including this one; however, 'Mysore Palace' refers specifically to this one within the Old fort.The land on which the palace now stands was originally known as mysuru , and is now known as the new Fort. Yaduraya built the first palace inside the Old Fort in the 14th century, which was burnt ablaze and constructed multiple times. The old fort was constructed using wood and thus was the reason for the old fort to catch on fire, the current fort was made up of stone,bricks and wood.

One of the beautiful palaces in the country. Too much crowded, go with family, have some great photo framing family pictures. Go inside if you want to view the architectural beauty of the palace otherwise stay outside because theres too much heat inside because of crowd, govt should consider to install AC now. Nice place to visit if you are in Mysore. Interiors of this palace are amazing. You will be amazed to see this and only one question will arise in your so beautiful! How anyone can carve rocks so beautifully. A temple is also there and a garden. The washroom is there for male and the female. Wonderful light and water show by evening. That was fabulous.. You ca have a look at it despite visiting the palace in the day time..


The reason behind this review is that I didnt feel good seeing the way the palace is maintained and how the historical paintings, art, structure and architecture is not preserved in the way its supposed to be. See, first of all its the only palace in Karnataka and it attracts lot of tourists around the world. My few points 1. There is no proper write up in every room to bread about or any information so that one can spend time and reread and feel the space. 2. The old painting gallery cant even call it a gallery Lets say a dumping yard but kept neatly. All the royal paintings and kept randomly without a proper lighting, a neat hanging mechanism nothing. Shame 3. The ornamented inlay door leading to halls are covered with fiber sheet and nailed randomly. The beauty of the door is went into gutter. If they want to preserve the door do it in a proper way. Not nailing randomly 4 there is a lot to say 5. I didnt like it


Amazing experience over there... Really enjoyed the collection they have put in such a proper manner and also the historical gifts are kept very neatly and lot of security for the same... The interior of the palace is so so so amazing... You will fall in love with the work. ..? amazing place to spend your day over there... At night there are all lights and everything i am visiting again at night...


Palaces are always a place of wonder. You get to learn a lot about the history of a place from the palace. Who ruled the place, where they lived, how they dressed, a lot of things can be known from visiting a palace. In an architectural perspective, Mysore palace is just beautiful. Its such a photogenic place, so well designed. Love visiting the palace. Its always a wonder. The whole place surrounding the palace is also really beautiful and well maintained.


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.?✨??
