My TripAdvisor Review No.200: Mysore Maharaja's Palace.

“Grand Palace of Mysore.”
4 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 days agoNEW
For anyone visiting Mysore a visit to the Maharaja’s Palace, also known as Amba Vilas, is a must. It is one of the most iconic monuments of this city, and is located in the centre of Mysore. It is the residence of the erstwhile royal family of Mysore, the Wodiyars.

There is an entrance fee of Rs.40 per head, and cameras are not allowed inside. An audio guide is available on payment of an additional fee.

You have to take off your footwear and leave your camera in a free locker provided near the entrance to the Palace. The Palace grounds are huge and there are well laid out gardens and pathways.

Inside the palace are huge halls and rooms decorated with period furniture, paintings and precious artefacts well laid out and displayed. You are made to follow a certain sequence of rooms as you go from room to room and admire the items on display.

The palace is illuminated every Sunday and other public holidays from 7 pm to 7.30 pm, and looks indeed spectacular when it is all lit up.
