The very first destination on your Mysore sightseeing tour has to be right in the heart of the city, to the Mysore Palace. This former royal residence is one of the largest palaces in the country and is surely a treat to the eyes. Enter the palace through any of its four arched gates and you will see the palace sitting beautifully in a garden. We have the fascinating architecture of the palace to thank for its mind-blowing beauty. After all, the palace’s architecture has influences from Muslim, Hindu, Gothic, Rajput and Indo-Saracenic architecture.
