Tamil Nadu Photos : India : Mysore Palace
Mysore Ambalavilas Palace or Mysore Palace is the official residence of the Wodeyar royal family of Mysore and Durbar.

Mysore Palace is an excellent example of architectural beauty and craftmanship. Mysore palace was initially built during the Muslim Dynasty of Haider and Tipu. After their downfall, the Wodeyars rebuilt and refurnished the architectural style of the Mysore Palace from the Muslim way to that of Hindu.

The palace is one of India’s most dramatic national monuments. The architectural style of the palace is commonly described as Indo-Saracenic.

Palace is the venue for the famous Mysore Dasara festival, during which leading artists perform on a stage set up in the palace grounds.

The Mysore Palace is open all days of the week, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The palace is illuminated on Sundays, national holidays and state festivals from 7:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. The palace is illuminated between 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. only during the Dasare festival.
