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.
I always love places that are more green and have mountains. Mysore is one such a city where you feel very scenic and the colour of this city is very green. This is my second visit to the city and I wish to come again and again. Maharaja Mysore palace is a must visit place when you are in Mysore. I have visited Chamundi hills as well. 10 KMS away from the city station we went to Kunti Betta where there are 3 huge mountains. We can climb these, but be careful. The sunset is the most beautiful part from top of the hill. Please don't miss the images. A trip with your best buddies is a trip unforgettable.
