There is a hint of beauty in almost everything that is related to Mysore, one of the most popular cities of Karnataka state. Thanks to its historical significance and rich cultural heritage, Mysore is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in all over India. There are some imposing palaces, fabulous gardens, breathtaking and colour rich festivals, and of course the incredible craftsmanship are a few specialities that make this city a must visit at least once in your lifetime.
Mysore Palace is inarguably the most renowned spot in the city and is also referred to as the Mysore Maharaja Palace. The Palace was built in 1897 using only wood, which was later damaged by fire. It was reconstructed in 1912. The most incredible thing about this palace is that its style is a blend of Hindu, Gothic, Islam and Rajput influences. While the craftsmanship will leave you gaping during the daytime, the 100,000 bulbs that illuminate the place during the night will take your breath away.
Karanji Lake, Chamundi Hills, Mysore Zoo, Brindavan Gardens, and Shivanasamudra Falls are some of the places you should definitely visit when you are in the city. Mysore is beautiful and inviting. You will want to keep coming back here again and again.
