About Mysore Palace in Mysore
Located in the heart of the city, the majestic Mysore Palace, also known as the Ambavilas Palace, stands tall to take the hearts of its visitors right away. Built in the Indo-Saracenic style with blends of Hindu, Mughal, Rajput and Gothic styles, this three-storeyed stone structure surrounded by beautiful lush gardens, provides a structure like never witnessed before.
The history of Mysore Palace dates back to almost 600 years when it was built as the royal residence for the then ruling Wadiyar family of Mysore. The palace had been built and rebuilt several times between 1350 to 1950. The superstructure and the interior of Mysore Palace clearly depict the way how luxurious the royal family used to live their daily lives.
The Mysore Palace architecture consists of a three-storeyed stone structure built of fine grey granite with deep pink marble domes along with a number of arches. The main complex is 245 feet long and 156 ft wide. The main entrance gate and the arch hold the emblem around written in Sanskrit. The palace also has 2 Durbar halls and also assimilates a number of courtyards, gardens and beautiful buildings.
The Royal Palace of Mysore also hosts an alluring Light and Sound show daily except for Sunday and public holidays. The show is organized every day between 7:00 p.m to 7:30 p.m.

Kunalpk's 5 days trip to MysoreEnjoyed the trip site seeing that was very well organized. Thanks travel triangle for organizing the overall package. Overall it was a very good trip. If I have to give feedback than I would say that the hotel in Coorg - Igloo residency did not had any window for mountain view though it was close to the sites of visits. Also the hotel did not have there own restaurant so we had to order food from outside. On the other hand hotel in otty - Fortune retreats was far away from the sites. Overall it was a very good trip.

Kailas's 6 days trip to MysoreGreat people to work with. The team (Tour Operator: Mr. Basha Khan sir was very disciplined, polite and co-operative. He made us feel at home and was always ready to extend help. The Chill Memories team was great and coordination was easy & quick. All hotels staff were awesome and down to earth.

Sadanandanneenu's 3 days trip to MysoreSelected a tour package of 14000 and we needed to pay 17000 .it was really hard for us.
Dr's 4 days trip to MysoreExcellent service no words to describe Excellent service no need of 2nd thought
Priyajain's 6 days trip to MysoreThe hotel at coorg was not that good in terms of bathroom. Shooter was deadly. Bath soap was not refilled. Also in one room, very bad smell was coming when the room was allotted and such smell continued for 1 day. The driver was rude many times. For first 2 days he refused to go at many places citing traffic and all. Also we thought that as we have got a travel package we would be taken for sightseeing on its own. But everytime we only have to tell the driver where we have to go. Even slight inconvenience to driver in terms of taking a u turn etc, made the driver behave rudely with us. At 2 hotels we were asked to pay balance amount Which was due to miscommunication between the travel agent and hotel management. This caused little inconvenience to us. Support of travel agent trip asia was appreciated. They asked us at every other day if everything is going smooth.
Raylon's 3 days trip to MysorePlease call me for the feedback on the hotel The cab driver was excellent
