Mysore Palace

Mysore’s main tourist attraction is Mysore Palace. Mysore palace is very popular with Indian tourists who come to appreciate not only the grandeur of the building but also for a glimpse of the glamorous lifestyle of what was effectively India’s last maharajah, who died in 1974.

The palace was constructed between 1897 and 1912 to replace a 14th Century palace destroyed in a fire. The new palace was built on a grand scale. The main building is 75 metres long and 48 metres wide, topped by a gold dome rising to 48 metres above ground level. At night Mysore Palace is illuminated by an estimated 97,000 light bulbs and many tourists go to the palace in the evening time specifically to see this spectacle.
