Deeply entrenched in its royal heritage, Mysore is home to the most stunning monuments in the country and therefore features in all Southern India itineraries. A major drawcard is the opulent UNESCO World Heritage listed Mysore Palace and the eponymous masala dosa. Moreover, silk and sandalwood also happen to be synonymous with the city. If history and architecture are like music to your ears, Mysore is exactly where you should be.
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.
Mysore is one beautiful town located in the heart of Karnataka. Though this town is known for its many famous places like Mysore Palace, Mysore Zoo, Mysore Lake etc. a simple ride in the town or a walk in the by lanes of Mysore will give you immense peace & pleasure. Coming back to the famous places of Mysore you have Beautiful & Grand Mysore palace right in the central region of Mysore overlooking the city. It is one of the most visited places of India and one of the famous tourist attractions of the country. Best time to visit the palace is in the month of October as during this month Mysore Palace host the famous Dasara festival. also during this period palace is illuminated with more than 90,000 lights which makes the entire view mesmerising. The next place of our visit was Mysore Zoo. It is one of the oldest & most popular zoos in India. this zoo is home to more than 160 different species. As we didn't have much time we could not spend more time in Mysore and moved to our next destination.
I left at around 3.30 a.m for my first destination was Mysore, 181 kms from Bangalore. Reached in 3 hours, thanks to the cab driver. Almost no visibility due to fog and no civilians around, I found difficulty with my hungry stomach to wait there and hence decided to move to my next destination which is 49 kms from Mysore- a small town called Nanjangud.
