Mysore Palace

Mysore Palace, also known as Amba Vilas Palace, is one of the most visited buildings in India after the Taj Mahal. The palace was constructed between 1897 and 1912 in place of another palace, constructed in the 14th Century, which was destroyed in a fire.

Mysore Palace was the main residence of the Maharaja of Mysore, who retained his title and, to an extent, his position long after India gained independence. His reign ended with his death in 1974. Part of the fascination with Mysore Palace is the glamour associated with being rich and being a member of one of India’s most important royal families.

Mysore Palace itself is also architecturally noteworthy and built on a grand scale. The replacement palace was designed by an English architect, Henry Irwin, in the Indo-Saracenic architectural style. Indo-Saracenic architecture was an invention of the British Empire, widely used in public buildings across Britain’s Asian colonies and distinct from any individual country’s architectural traditions. The style blends Gothic European architecture with elements of Mughal and Arabian architecture.

Mysore Palace is 75 metres long and 48 metres deep, with a cluster of four dome topped towers on either side of the main entrance. The tallest tower, in the centre of the building, is 48 metres high with a gold plated dome. The facade has archways, reminiscent of Moorish palaces, bay windows similar to palaces in Rajasthan and a canopy over the front entrance similar to a British stately home. At night the entire building is illuminated by approximately 97,000 electric light bulbs.
