Whenever I think of Mysore, images of the brave warrior and king, Tipu Sultan captures my mind. Every brick of the city speaks of a history that has been so deeply rooted. Mysore is the second largest city of the state of Karnataka and boasts of a rich cultural heritage. The city not only inspires the art and history lovers but also draws immense nature admirers. Located in the southern part of the Deccan plateau, Mysore was once the capital of the Wodeyar dynasty. Mysore has a quaint charm that attracts tourists to the land in bulk.

The city is spread in an area of 128 square kilometers and is famous for its sandalwood and other craft items. The festivals of the place are also very charming and full of fun and frolic. Sightseeing
Mysore PalaceMysore Palace - The Mysore Palace is a must see for all those who love art and grandeur. The palace is an ultimate delight. It ha been beautifully made. The architecture follows an Indo- Saracenic style with domes, turrets, arches, the palace looks stunning. The door of this palace is massive and the walls are intricately carved. The golden throne embedded with precious stones and jewellery is put on display every year during the Dussehra festival.

The palace also houses a museum which has a collection of musical instruments, children's toys, many paintings, costumes, weapons, etc., belonging to the Maharaja's family.

Chamundi Hills - The Chamundi Hills is 1,100 feet in height. On the top of the hill lies the Chamundeshwari temple dedicated to goddess Durga. The temple is very old belonging to the 11th century. One has to climb around 100 steps to reach the temple. Near the temple there is a huge statue of Mahisasura, the demon who was killed by goddess Durga. The statue is about 300 years old and is very much recognised by the tourists because of its huge size.

Rail Museum - All those who love having a sneak -peak at history can follow the steps that lead one to the Rail Museum. Like other Mysore attractions, this museum is not famous but houses locomotive coaches, paintings and photographs narrating the 'Rail Story'. The major crowd puller here is the Maharaja's saloon, which was designed for the Wodeyar rulers.

Brindavan Gardens - About 19 kms from he city lies the Brindavan Gardens. These world famous terrace gardens are a ultimate delight for the tourists coming to Mysore. The garden is bounded by water courses. The gardens turns paradisaical at the evening with the Musical water fountain and the light show.

The Art Gallery - The famous Jaganmohan Palace was transformed into an art gallery in 1875. The gallery houses paintings of the ancient period. The artists of that era used natural vegetable and mineral dyes. The famous traditional Mysore 'gold leaf ' paintings are also exhibited in the gallery, as are oil paintings of contemporary artist like Raja Ravi Varma and Svetoslav Roerich.
