Spending a few days in the heritage corridor of Mysuru is interesting since there are a lot of things to do here. Many of the attractions in Mysuru give visitors a perfect glimpse into the rich legacy of Karnataka's art. But somehow I feel that the city has remained limited within the shackles of its royalty and palaces. Wherein reality there is much more to Mysuru than this. Let us explore it beyond the heritage buildings.
Mysore Zoo: Mysore Zoo is the second most frequented attraction for the tourists visiting the city after Mysore Palace. Located within an area of 157 acre, this Zoo is counted amongst the world's oldest Zoo that exist today. Currently, the Zoo abodes approximately 1,450 specimen of animals and birds consisting of 168 species from more than 25 countries.
