Travel Tips for Mysore

Rupees

by muddybok

The Indian Rupee (Hindi: रूपया) is the official currency of India. The issuance of the currency is controlled by the Reserve Bank of India. (the Hindi copied from Wikipedia)

In India, Rupees that marked with ink and covered with scotch tapes are of common sights, but you still can transact with them. Of course some very torn pieces might be return to you and still you can pass it on to another hand soon enough.

Amba Vilas Palace

by Canadienne

You aren't allowed to wear your shoes or to bring your camera inside the palace. A donation of change keeps your shoes safe outside, cameras are left in lockboxes (you carry the ticket around with you).

St.Philomena Church

by mallyak

Located to the north of the city, this colossal church is a stunning neo-Gothic structure built from 1933 to 1941. Also known as St Joseph's Church, it was designed after the Cologne Cathedral by Rev Rene Feuge, bishop of Mysore in 1933. The lofty crosses on the twin towers are 120 feet high.

The church looms 165 feet into the air, its twin spires touching the sky. The interiors, much like any other church, are peaceful. The stained glass lends a lovely yellow light to the interiors of the church. The beautiful image of Philomena, who is known as a martyr for Christ, is placed uncharacteristically in an underground chapel. You can make donations in the receptacle kept here. The glass windows that adorn the interiors of the main hall depict scenes from the birth of Christ, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the Ascension of Christ. No photography allowed inside the church. And if services are on, don't disturb.

Mysore - Railway Museum

by mallyak

The first of its kind in India, the Rail Museum was set up in 1979. Situated at Krishnaraja Sagar Road, the museum sets a good pattern for regional display and has a good collection. The highlight here is the Chamundi Gallery that showcases a unique and interesting collection of photographs and paintings depicting the development of the railways. Don't miss the Sri Ranga Pavilion, which has two royal coaches. They belonged to the Maharaja of Mysore and have a certain old-world charm about them, harking back to a time when royalty travelled in splendour. Most of the exhibits in the museum once graced the Mysore palace.

The particular interest is the Maharani's saloon carriage that boasts of a kitchen, dining car unit and a royal toilet dating back to 1899. One of the first steam engines built, it is indeed remarkably well kept. There is also a battery-operated mini-train, which takes you for a fancy ride along the grounds

Sri Shweta Varahaswami Temple

by Willettsworld

This temple is located near the southern entrance of Mysore Palace. The presiding deity is Varaha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. A fine Hoysala structure, the temple was built under the patronage of Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyar III. It boasts carved doorways, pillars and towers, apart from five tiered Rajagopuram and the stuccoed images at the entrance. Its hall is graced with mural paintings, which represent the scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabharata, popular being the one depicting the coronation of Lord Ram. The inscribed images of Srivaishnava Acharyas, Desikar and Jiyar are the added attractions.
