Maharaja's Palace - Mysore
Maharaja's Palace Maharaja's Palace Review

The Maharaja’s Palace really is a fairytale structure and dominates the centre of Mysore. The palace was completed in 1912 on the site of another palace which was destroyed by fire in 1897. The building is 75m long, 48m wide and 44m high, surrounded by twelve temples. There are six gates, but the only one which you may enter through is the south gate.

See General Tips for pictures of the amazing interior of the Palace

Nandi Bull - Mysore
Nandi Bull Nandi The Bull Review

Halfway down Chamundi Hill is Nandi the bull, Lord Shiva's vehicle. It is quite an impressive sculpture, five metres high and carbed from a single piece of black granite in 1659. Legend claims that the it was built in a single night. It is the third largest Nandi in India.

There were a group of these pilgroms here when we arrived and I felt a little uncomfortable about taking photos until they actually beckoned me to do so.

Brindavan Gardens - Mysore
Brindavan Gardens Brindavan Gardens Review

These ornamental gardens have been laid out alongside a 2.6 km long dam. Our local guide was extremely proud of these gardens and really looking forward to showing them off to us. We were, I'm afraid to say, somewhat unimpressed. Many terrasses and fountains adorn the ground, but there was nothing of great interest there. Sorry.

At night the fountains are lit up - see nightlife tip.
