Mysore Palace

The crown jewel in this city of palaces, this palace is the official residence of the Wadiyar royal family. This is a heavily visited tourist spot, and of special interest to those who love architecture. Visitors can walk through several rooms and hallways in the palace and take in the exhibits, decor and several works of art.

Pro tip: Try and avoid the (inevitable) rush by going as soon as it opens or just before closing time.
