Swimming Pool Mysore

by fishdisco

Hi

I am thinking of moving to Mysore for a couple of months. I am from the UK. There are a couple of things I need help with before I decide if I can go to Mysore.

Firstly is there a 25m swimming pool in Mysore? Either public or private or perhaps a nice hotel? I am a swimmer and I would need to have a swimming pool. How do they feel about females swimming? I am cool with there being a separate ladies session.

Secondly are there any intensive kannada courses? I mean 6+ hours a day for maybe one month. I would also be prepared to pay for one-to-one lessons so that I can learn faster.

Looking forward to your reply. Many thanks
Fish

RE: Swimming Pool Mysore

by zanzibarman

Hello there,
There is alot nice hotel in mysore, but most of them they dont have pool but there is some did have. Like Ramanashree hotel around the city did have swimming pool it cost abit. If you need to learn karnada go to this restaurant there is lot of yoga students most of them from Europe and America most of them they live there for months they will help you alot. This two restaurants Shilpa shree and Parklane at six to seven you will meet alot of tourists going to eat. If you can't find take auto rick show they will take you there.
Have nice trip to mysore I used to like there for four and half year. I speak alittle bit karnada. I used to be a student of mysore university.

Travel Tips for Mysore

Devaraja Market ~ Dyes

by Canadienne

Aside from fruit, vegetables and flowers, you can also find interesting stalls with pigments/dyes, incense and perfumes. There is one perfume stall in the market with a young salesman who appears to have mastered at least five different languages (including Kanada, which would be his mother tongue) ~ he spoke English and French with me, German with one of my traveling companions, Italian to two young women who were at the market. . .

His fluency was impressive. . .and good for business, I'm sure. :-)

Flower and Veg Market

by muddybok

Not many guide books nor web pages mentioned about this market. Lonely Planet however did stating this place as quite interesting, but to a shutter happy guys like me it's almost heaven.

In here, you'll see many activities starting from morning till slightly past noon. If you are happened to be here before 9am, you will get to see flower auction at the left-side of the market starting from the main entrance of the market.

The sellers will bring their "flower balls" wrapping in the clothes and arranged nicely awaiting for the auctioneer to conduct the auction. While the auction is carried out, the potential buyer will test out how compact the flower ball is and purchase for their retail business purposes.

There are some stores selling strings of flower rings ready to be used for worshipping purposes. You will see lots of bees flying around those flowers especially those that made of jasmine.

St Bartholomew's Church

by Willettsworld

This simple classical church was built in 1830 on land donated by Krishnaraja Wodeyar III to serve the civil and military officers attached to the Residency. Despite its size, the church twice played host to the visiting British Royalty - Prince Albert (Queen Victoria's husband) in 1889, and the future King George V in 1906. At the west end of the church, over the altar, is a large stained glass window depicting St Bartholomew which was donated by Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV to mark the centenary of the church.

Nandi (sacred bull) on Chamundi Hill

by cadzand

Also on this temple are several images of Nandi (the bull mount of Shiva).
The best known of these is the colossal Nandi on the 800th step on the hill. This Nandi is over 4,50 m high and over 7 m long. It was created during the reign of Dodda Devaraja, who also built the steps leading up the hill.
