Railway Station's waiting room

by SirRichard

If you have to wait for a train at the station of any India’s big city, you won’t get bored if you like staring at the crowds, and following people’s activities. There’s always a rush and a push everywhere, people with huge parcels, bags, dressed in bright colours, families, groups… a colourful show.

Spend half a day at the zoo

by abi_maha

If you love animals then this is a must do, all animals have been given ample space to roam around and you get to see them at such close quarters that I sure was thrilled!! Loved the tall giraffes, the huge bisons and the tiger that was lolling in the grass looking like a teddy bear! Ofcourse we were lucky to catch him outside his cage that day! We even caught a nice bison fight while at the zoo, check the photos! :)

Chamundeswari temple

by cadzand

A flight of one thousand steps also leads up to the summit of the hill which is at a height of about 915 m. Much of the current temple is the result of renovation efforts carried out in early nineteenth century, although the original shrine is much older.
The temple has large silver gates and golden idols. It is considered to be a very religious temple, where the blessings of the goddess help devotees to fulfill their need. Pilgrims are supposed to climb the 1000 odd steps to the top, to improve their past 'karmas'

The Mysore Palace

by muddybok

Mysore Palace Architecture (fact extracted from © Mysore Palace Board)

A dramatic three storied stone building of fine gray granite with deep pink marble domes dominated by a five-storied 145 ft tower with a gilded dome mounted by a single golden flag.

Designed by Henry Irwin, the Mysore Palace is one of the finest achievements of Indo-Saracenic architecture, summing up many diverse themes that have played through Indian architecture over the centuries. Muslim designs and Rajput style combine with Gothic elements and indigenous materials in an exuberant display of grandeur.

The palace is set among meticulously laid gardens and has an intricately detailed elevation with a profusion of delicately curved arches, bow-like canopies, magnificent bay windows and columns in varied styles ranging from Byzantine to Hindu.


The striking façade has seven expansive arches and two smaller ones flanking the central arch, which is supported by tall pillars. Above the central arch is an impressive sculpture of Gajalakshmi - the Goddess of wealth with elephants.

The sumptuous interiors of the palace, in keeping with the grand exteriors, are replete with exquisitely carved doors, expansive pavilions, delicate chandeliers, exquisite stained glass ceilings and decorative frescoes depicting scenes from the Indian epics. An enduring reminder of the splendour of the Mysore maharajas and a testament to the dexterity of the local artisans and craftsmen.


No shoe nor camera allowed in the palace. I just cannot imagine if cameras were to allow in the palace because all the priceless collection will be soon removed by thefts and the queue for visiting will take forever to clear.


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.
