  • I have been to Bangalore countless number of times but always missed to visit this place. Finally last month made a point to visit. In one word, "spectacular". Everyone who has little bit interest in history and culture should visit this place. Very well kept and with very less crowded.(probably because of bit higher entry fee). Entry fee is about 225 for Indians which also includes the audio tour. But I feel they should have allowed without the audio tour with reduced price. But then there is a separate cost of photography! 675 rupees for regular camera!! Yes first time in India I am seeing such ridiculously priced package! Its not too big of a palace. But worth a visit once. There are stairs to climb up so elders please take a note of that.
  • Gorgeous palace inside and out, with so much history. The price is decent and you're provided with a guided tour which is a plus, and usually not that busy! Definitely a must see in town, and won't take you more than 1 hour to tour. You can also have weddings there! However it was only for the king and queens resting or u can say their holiday home. It's kept well. But I think all we can see is the over view . Only corridors and stairs . Hope I could get more glimpse of the interiors. Ticket is quite over priced. 230 RS for Indians and 460 RS for foreigners. Still one time watch place. But they should open more rooms and places for the visitors .Well maintained and clean palace, filled with history. Entry fees is ₹230 per head. This includes an audio guide device(available in various languages apart from hindi and english). You've to deposit an ID proof or ₹2000 while collecting the device, so make sure you carry an ID with you during your visit. You can visit different sites in the palace while listening about its history from your own audio device(sharing device is not allowed). The full audio length is 40-45 minutes, you're expected to finish your tour and return the device in 45 minutes. There's no choice to enter the palace without audio guide. But it is a hassle-free experience, it's like having your own personal guide. You'll be charged extra if you want to use your camera. There's a garden as well, your ticket includes that as well. Keep 1-1.5 hours time to visit this place. Parking is free!

  • I'm giving 4 stars bcz it's a royal palace and has kept well. However it was only for the king and queens resting or u can say their holiday home. It's kept well. But I think all we can see is the over view . Only corridors and stairs . Hope I could get more glimpse of the interiors. Ticket is quite over priced. 230 RS for Indians and 460 RS for foreigners.
