Poorly maintained, unruly crowds due to cheep entry fee make this a avoidable attraction.
We were very keen to see the sound and light show in the evening which never happened - ofcourse without any prior announcement - incredible india.

Many lights and fountains didn't work - what a shame.

Infact we felt the gardens made a good view in the day then the evening. Although there are many better gardens than this around the world & also in india.

Ok so we travelled on a long weekend, but still it was over crowded. We went there around 7 Pm, it was so dimly lit and we can barely see each other. there has to be a limit on number of people allowed at any given time. With our kids it became so hard that we just returned in 15 minutes.

Went on a weekend.

Crazy parking area - looks like a massive traffic jam and you'll never get out of it.

Crowd management - 1000\s of people and a handful of cops managing the place.

Gardens - So much crowd Can't even take a picture. Lot of litter as people freely climb onto the lawns for relaxing. 1 toilet for like 3000 people.

Musical fountain - Looks like there is absolutely no way to get out in case of an emergency. NO lights at night! So much crowd that you just walk one behind the other. People use mobile flash and displays to navigate. Absolutely no-no for elderly people. You are just supposed to walk in the dark and sit on the amphi theater. We were confused whether it was a power cut or part of the show. Looks like there would a stampede anytime.
The dancing fountain isn't that great too. For people who come from the cities, having seen similar shows , it isn't anything different. For first timers it should be entertaining.

We just left within 10 min of the start of the show. Definitely worth a miss in your mysore trip itinerary

Have some cheesy photographs taken with floral backgrounds, the local photographer will print out the same for you on the spot for Rs 20 for a 4x6 print!!
