Enjoy a royal take on art in Jayachamarajendra Art Gallery, a Mysore palace turned into gallery and museum. Built in 1861, it now serves as a collection of art, kitsch items, and regal memorabilia collected by the kings of Mysore. See one of the largest collections of artefacts in South India. Observe the envisioned Hindu epics of Ramayana and Mahabharatha embodied into paintings made by Raja Ravi Varma, as well as paintings by Nikolai Roerich, Svetoslav Roerich, and Rabindranath Tagore. The gallery also exhibits numerous weapons, musical instruments, as well as sculptures and brassware.
