"Breathtaking Spectacle"

A breathtaking epitome of the Indo - Saracenic architecture, the Mysore Palace is a remarkable edifice located in Mysore. It housed the royalty of Mysore and is still their official residence. The facade of the mansion is an incredible blend of Hindu, Muslim, Rajput and Gothic architecture-styles. The flamboyantly decorated and intricately carved doors, the elegantly ornate rooms, the exquisite Durbar Hall, the finely chiselled mahogany ceilings and many other furnishings spellbound the visitors narrating the lavishness of the royal lifestyle.

Mysore Palace

The Palace of Mysore is a historical palace in the city of Mysore in Karnataka, southern India. It is the official residence and seat of the Wodeyars — the rulers of Mysore, the royal family of Mysore, who ruled the princely state from 1399 to 1950. The palace houses two durbar halls and incorporates an array of courtyards, gardens, and buildings. The palace is in the central region of inner Mysore, facing the Chamundi Hills eastward.

Mysore is commonly described as the City of Palaces. There are about seven palaces inclusive of this; however, Mysore Palace refers specifically to the one within the Old Fort. Built by the Maharaja Rajarshi His Highness Krishnarajendra Wadiyar IV, Mysore Palace is now one of the most famous tourist attractions in India, after the Taj Mahal, with more than 6 million annual visitors.
