Located in Southern India (around 140 km from Bangalore), Mysuru which is also known as Mysore since 2014 is one of the cleanest city in India. The roads are canopied by trees which makes you feel at ease with nature. Serene is the one word which perfectly describes this place, although it can be hot here the weather is mostly pleasant. It can rain anytime, anywhere. When we left for sight-seeing there were thunder clouds already surrounding the magnificent Palace of Mysore.
Also known as the city of Palaces, because the famous heritage site- Mysore Palace is a tourist attraction. People come from all over the world to see the historical glory of this place. There are various art museums and the government authorized products are sold at the "Kaveri Emporium". Again, there is a whole street devoted to the shopaholics out there. But one should be careful while buying the Mysore Silk Sari's because places like these are often followed by deceit and trickery. You must ensure that the material is actual Silk with the authentic price. From zoo's to Palaces, museums/art-galleries, gardens, temples/churches and hill's Mysore is the ultimate guide to South India. People tend to speak Kannada rather than English or Hindi, so communication might be a problem. But this place has a lot to offer...history, greenery, and the perfect atmosphere for travelers.
