mysore palace, Mysore

mysore palace, Mysore

Mysuru Palace is one of the most magnificent buildings. It is a sight not to be missed when it is illuminated on Sundays and festive occasions. Also known as ‘Amba Vilas Palace’, Mysore Palace is located in the heart of Mysore and is the official residence of the Wodeyars (erstwhile royal family of Mysore). This remarkable palace is one of the most famous tourist attractions in India, second only to the enchanting Taj Mahal (Agra). The architecture of the palace is an amalgamation of Muslim, Rajput, Hindu and Gothic styles of architecture. The palace houses two durbar halls (ceremonial meeting halls of the royal court) and incorporates a mesmerizing and gigantic array of courtyards, gardens, and buildings. 

Construction of the current palace was commissioned in 1897, completed in 1912, and expanded around 1940 (including the addition of the present Public Durbar Hall wing) during the reign of His Highness Maharaja Jayachamarajendra Wadiyar, the last Maharaja of Mysore Kingdom. The construction was completed in 1912, but the fort continued to be beautified and its inhabitants were slowly moved to the newer extension built off the palace. 
The beautiful building was designed by Henry Irwin, using fine gray granite and deep pink marble (for domes). The Mysore Palace houses many exquisite carvings and works of art from all over the world, and thus, has been converted into a museum for public viewing. To enjoy the beautiful view do remember to arrive a little early to settle at a vantage position. The best part about it is that the Mysore Palace is lit in one stroke, rather than in parts. So, arrive before the palace is about to be illuminated to feel the real charm.
