Mysore Travel Guide
Known for its cultural heritage, Mysore is a prominent travel destination in Karnataka. Along with a Mysore tourist map, it’s essential to know more about city’s weather, historical places, and sightseeing information. Here’s a detailed Mysore travel guide with key information about Mysore below
Culture of Mysore
Mysore is dubbed as the Cultural Capital of Karnataka. Since the heydays of the Vijayanagar Empire and the Wodeyar rulers, the city has embraced all religions and people with open arms. Today, the city is well known for its lavish palaces, museums, and the festivities. From Mysore Pak to Mysore silk saree, the city has branded itself via various food and handicraft. The city is also a popular hub of handicraft, paintings, and silk production.
Climate of Mysore
Mysore weather is mostly temperate throughout the year. The temperatures during summer in Mysore are not as scorching as in the northern Karnataka. Due its higher elevation, the city experiences a pleasant weather condition. October through March is the best time to visit Mysore, be it a family holiday or a honeymoon. Avoid visiting Mysore in the monsoon season, when the rainfall is too heavy.
Food of Mysore
Mysore food has influences from the traditional Udupi cuisine. Served with sambhar and coconut chutney, Mysore Masala Dosa is a common breakfast here. Mysore Pak is another specialty which perhaps originated from the city. This sweet dish is generally made out of gram flour and sugar. Other staple food in Mysore are:
Bisibele Baath: Made of rice and lentils
Raagi and Akki Rotis: Made of raagi or rice flour
On formal or ceremonial occasions, lunch or dinner is served on a plantain leaf. Dinner or lunch spread includes gojju (a sweet curry), rasam, chutney, and papad.
Festivals of Mysore
Celebrated every year in September or October, Dussehra or Dasara festivities in Mysore were started by Raja Wodeyar I in 1610. On Vijayadashami, the last day of 10-day Dasara celebrations, there is a special prayer ceremony to Goddess Chamundeshwari. Later, a ceremonial procession, known as Jumboo Savari, passes through the streets of Mysore. This stately procession includes the idol of the Goddess Chamundeshwari, decorated elephants, and colorful tableaux.

Trip to KarnatakaGood trip, Though we did not like the accommodation at gokarna, the driver did not know internary of places to go to and the breakfast that was given in internary which was suppose to be complimentary was never given.... But again apart from this we loved the place and experience. Thank you Travel Triangle.
Trip to KarnatakaWe have selected La Flora resort on your trust but it was a massive surprise for all of us.No guest was checked in and much insecure place.At reception guy was sleeping on matress .Although thanks to cab driver who took us to new hotel which was ok. Very bad experience with travel triangle for booking hotels in coorg.You guys are just there to make money anyhow,guest security should also be there with good hospitality.I will share this with all my network.
Trip to KarnatakaIts was very good trip. Specially our Driver Vijay Kumar who shows all places. He also gives nice Guidelines and Spot information. driving Also Excellent. hotels are good. Coorg and ooty hotels are nice. Specially Thanks to travel Triangle who arrange good Agent (miles 2 fly ) :-) Love that climate......
Trip to KarnatakaCustomer always have theire budget of tour . travel triangle should avoid making changes in hotel bookings and charge coustomer after package booking . Overall service was very good . Darshan hotel was not so promt and good with thier service.I loved Palm era and Le ruchi. Botanical garden and Brindavan garden. Ooty mysure coorg is not a good option for tour after Jan month.
Trip to KarnatakaIt was a beautiful trip supported by good guidance from the agent(Wind & Wheel- Kritika). Also the cab driver was very quick and very polite. This is the second time we have taken service from travel triangle and I must say they always meet our expectations.
Trip to KarnatakaInspire Holidays agent has given good service but the follow up is not done smoothly. The back-end advance booking is done but missed on giving a payment screenshot to the hotel staff or informing us which lead to little uncomfortable situation. Communication through phone by the agent or mail saying that we have paid so and so advance will help in future. The room booking was not confirmed and we had to wait and discuss with the hotel staff for at least 40 mins at 12 AM midnight with a kid. The agent is good but the process dint go smooth. About travel triangle-- The agent has called few times till we registered and done the advance payment. Later there was no followup and no response for messages. but timely he sent the invoices for balance payments. when called for some information, his response is, " ok, you need to check this with the agency which is dealing with the hotel booking". Initially to gain the confidence, they say you can call me anytime on my number if you have any issues I'll help. but when called for some information, no answer.
