Mysor Palace
Mysore PalaceThe official residence of the former royal family of Mysore, the Mysore Palace is the seat of the famed Wodeyar Maharajas of Mysore. Commissioned in 1897, its construction was completed in 1912 at a cost of Rs. 41, 47,913. It is now one of the most famous tourist attractions of Mysore visited by hundreds of people from all over the world daily.

Built in the Indo-Saracenic style, the Mysore Palace is a fine blend of Hindu, Muslim, Rajput, and Gothic styles of architecture. Standing 245 Ft in length and 156 Ft in width, the palace is a three-storied stone structure, with five marble domes (Kalash) and a 145 ft five-storied tower. This beautiful three storied stone building of fine gray granite with deep pink marble domes was designed by Henry Irwin. The facade has seven expansive arches and two smaller ones flanking the central arch which is supported by tall pillars. Above the central arch is an impressive sculpture of Gajalakshmi, the goddess of wealth with elephants. The palace is surrounded by a large garden.Book now
