Mysore Maharajah's Palace (Amba Vilas)

This palace which was the seat of the Wodeyar kings was rebuilt in the year 1912 by an English architect named Henry Irwin as the original one was destroyed of fire in 1897. This palace is one of the best examples not only of the Edwardian Raj Era but also of Indian Royal architecture. The beautiful kaliedoscope of stained glass enhanced with the wood carved doors and mosaic floors is exquisite undoubtedly. The museum of weapons is a must visit along with the part of the palace where you see a number of beautifully carved statues and paintings referring to the life of Mysore in that era.The palace is lit up with hundreds of bulbs every evening from 7:00 PM - 7:45 PM and the whole evening on public holidays. This is when you get a more extravagant view of this royal beauty.

This palace is so grand in its proportions and beauty that it looks like it sprung out of a fairytale. The interiors of the palace are intricately designed and adorned with ornate ceilings. There are jeweled corridors, stained glass windows, open mandaps, and also a jeweled throne. The best time to visit this palace is during the Dussehra festival.
