We really liked the things preserved and the cleanliness in the palace. We took help of a guide which was a good idea to go around the whole palace.

Mysore place quite big and have so many sections includes the living rooms as well as courtyards. The architecture of the palace is unique and very well designed. The most important Architecture par the carves designed. You will find the photos of the all the family of the royal kings. It also have some animalcule that were hunted with the weapons used for fighting.

The courtyard is very nice and is have a center place where king sit while women have different section. Down which some around 1-2 feet down meeting or discussion hall. There are some secret path to and in places is inside which is not opened for public as far i seen.

Best time to visit it is in Dusheera when you will see very beautiful image of the palace covered with light.

Very grand palace, and a must see in Mysore. We were dissapointed that we were not allowed to take cameras through the main building so unable to get any photos. We were required to surrender our footwear to walk around the main palace .... but found ourselves dodging elephant poo and urine so wondered what the point of removing our footwear was. Also finding our way back to retrieve our footwear was a bit of a trek. There was a sad attempt at security checks to enter the palace as no-one was actually looking at the x-ray monitors as our bags were scrutinised and peolple just walked around the metal detectors without challenge ! Grand views of the palace and grounds from the top of the building.

It was a good Palace looking from outside but feel it has been hyped a lot rather than the actual look... I think it is too far from banglore to travel to look at it which takes hardly 30 mins maximum since most rooms are closed and just a round tour inside which is not much to see from inside except the colour display of pillars which was very good... good well kept gardens.. but was really disaapointed as was expecting some good inside to look into a palace life which was missing..
