With a population of slightly over 1 million people Mysore, officially known as Mysuru, is relatively small city by Indian standards and a pleasant place with a relaxed pace of life and attitude; for instance, Mysore has the some of the most relaxed rules about the consumption of alcohol anywhere. Mysore attracts a lot of visitors because of it magnificent architecture. The Mysore Palace is one of the most visited tourist attractions in India.
The reason for great architecture in Mysore is that one point in time the city was the capital of a large kingdom encompassing large parts of what is now the state of Karnataka and part of Tamil Nadu. This empire fell apart in during the second half of the 18th Century when one of the military leaders usurped power from the ruling Wodeyar dynasty and then suffered defeat against the combined forces of the British and some of the neighbouring kingdoms. The Wodeyar dynasty was restored back to the status of puppet ruler (Maharaja) of Mysore although the administrative capital was moved to Banglore in 1831. The palaces and temples are visible remnants of a once great Empire of Mysore and their size and number is disproportionate to the diminutive size and status of contemporary Mysore.
