Modeled after the Windsor Castle surrounded by its gardens and cannons the Palace preserves a slice of bygone royal splendour . Fortified towers, Gothic windows and battlemented parapets make the palace a magnificent sight. It’s open to the public except the wings where the Wadiyars maintain a private residence. Opt for the audio tour and get introduced to the rich heritage of the Mysore Empire. The Palace Grounds host cultural performances, exhibitions and also weddings so if in luck you could catch a Rock(ing) performance or a Shopaholic Santhe!
