1. MYSORE PALACE
It is the most popular palace in Mysore attracting thousands of tourists by it’s marvelous architecture, and glamorous interiors. It is the official residence of Wadiyar dynasty that ruled for many centuries. The Indo-Saracenic masterpiece of Mysore has extraordinary blends of Hindu, Muslim and Gothic styles of architecture. I was truly mesmerized by the beauty of this palace.
Mysore Palace is a three-storeyed structure with cream-coloured walls complimented with red-coloured domes and has a huge garden surrounding it. The interiors of the palace has many luxurious halls with doors having exquisite wooden carvings, glittering chandeliers, tinted glass windows, and kaleidoscopic artworks on pillars, arches, ceilings, and floors.
The Mysore Palace during the evening is a royal beauty to behold with light and sound show organized every evening except for Sundays and national holidays. The whole palace lits up with numerous golden light bulbs and the sweet melody of the flute playing in the background is a peaceful feast for the senses.
