Mysore Palace-The Pride of Mysore
Mysore palace has marked its name in the list of renowned palaces of the South India. Located at Mirza Road, the famous Mysore Palace palace is the heart of the city. The palace dates back to 14th Century. Re-established by Randheera Kantheeveera Narasaraja,Wodeyar King, the palace has a great history. It was destroyed in 1897 AD by a lightening and fire accidents. The structure was again established in 1912 with the investment of around 40 lakh rupees.
Originally carved out of wood, the palace saw destruction in 1897. The 24th Wodeyar Raja re-built the palace in 1912. Indo-Saracenic style architecture of the palace reflects the beauty and art interest of the royal people. The architecture looks amazing with its 245 feet length and 156 feet breadth.
Combination of different architecture is the highlight of the palace. Hindu, Islamic, Gothic and Rajput architecture styles make the palace amazingly beautiful especially Amba Vilas and the Darbar Hall. Every nook and corner of the palace including courtyards, paintings, pillars, domes, carved panels and murals speak volume about the hard work of artisans and the skills of the golden vintage era. Entrances of the palace are named as Balarama, Brahma Puri, Kari Kallu Thotti, Varaha and Jayarama. Ornamental ceilings of the palace and colourful decoration of the walls grab the attention of the visitors.
Converted into a museum, the palace exhibits the belongings of royal family. Weapons, jewellery, souvenirs and the royal costumes are the evidences of the golden past. Gigantic Elephant Door of the palace is another highlight. The door is located in east of the palace. 'Kalyan Mandap' is the hall that draws the attention of the visitors. Gold-plated ceilings and pillars of Darbar hall will make you speechless.
Another attraction of Mysore palace is a pretty elephant structure, which is beautified with 80 kg of gold. Crown of the highlight goes to a royal throne of the Wodeyars. 200 kg gold coupled with an attractive artwork is simply beyond imagination. The royal thorn is only displayed during the Dussehra festival for the public.
Behold the majestic sight of Mysore Palace in a Royal way!
