  • Amazing place to visit. Very beautiful green road while approaching the palace. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Earlier outside gate two many shops were there, now all removed so looking very clean and quiet. Parking is good and spacious. this place is exceptionally beautiful, with large courtyards and truly royal interiors that is uniquely Indian with a British touch. The palace is a must-see in Mysore and try to go on a Sunday evening just before 7pm when they turn on 100,000 light bulbs... Fully rich and beautiful it is!
  • Amazing place to visit. Very nicely maintained by Govt. A trip to the history. Amazing thing is you will get a digital guide in your pocket at minimal cost, you will get a mp3 device with prerecorded details their is a number written on all items when you press that number you will hear all details regarding that item. Very beautiful green road while approaching the palace. The staff is very friendly and helpful. No photography allowed so beware. Earlier outside gate two many shops were there, now all removed so looking very clean and quiet. Parking is good and spacious.
  • Awesome historical palace to be. Great way to know how the great Kings lived their life large. Auditorium like halls, massive art work to admire. Off late, certain hall entries have been restricted. Be ready for a long walk. Take memorable snaps in front of the palace and on the grass land. Best time to visit - any busy working day to avoid weekend or holiday crowd.
  • Best and clean city. The palace is very beautiful. It is vast and has gates all sides. The staff people are nice and helpful. This is the place to things of kingdom times. The architecture is brilliant. The parking is free of cost. Art works, hall architectures etc. are really admirable. A must see and realyy well maintained tourist palace.
  • Visited it twice. One for watching grand illumination of the palace on Sundays from 19.00 hrs to 19.30 hrs. It was a visual treat worth enjoying and remembering. The other trip was to see the palace from inside. Wow. Marvellous indeed to go through each of the places inside. Feels very good to be inside. It's maintenance is excellent. Any one who visits Mysore must not miss this great palace. Timings are 10 am to 5 pm on weekdays and is closed on Sunday - when illumination can be watched in the evening.
