Travel Tips for Mysore

Local transport

by grets

We saw several people using elephants as a means of transport during our stay in India. They are huge animals and tower above all other traffic. Although fairly slow moving, an elephant can carry a fair amount of weight.

Tippu Sultan's summer Palace

by JMSYMONDS

About 1/2 hour (10 miles) out of Mysore by car, this small wooden palace is historically fascinating as well as being attractive and evocative of the days when Great Warrior states still held sway over India. The story of Tippu sultan (and his Father's) resistance to the East India Company is discussed (in English) with interesting displays and some fascinating portraits of the local court dignitaries, etched and painted by British artists!

(From here it is only another 1/2 hour drive (10 miles!) will take you to the Brindavan Gardens (and the Hotel restaurant within!). Its a delightful place during the day or at night when it is lit with coloured lights.

Color (Gulal) and smell

by muddybok

In Mysore, sandalwood (or oil) will be one single item that you aught to buy because they are mostly produced here. Of course not all sandalwood oil on sales is totally pure without adding other substances. You're encouraged to purchase sandalwood oils from government joints to ensure its purity and quality of those sandalwood products.

Gulal is a perfumed powder that is offered to godess.These colored powder is part of Sringar and symbol of joy we put on our forehead too and throw in air in relegious processions as a gesture of Joy.

In South India, there is a tradition of making beautiful Rangoli (floor decorations) by South Indian women using gulal. Rangloi of Gujrat is also famous for thier traditional patterns.

These stores will normally sell incense as well. You will be most likely to be approached by store takers for buying incense with them. I must say that most of these incense smell really great and no harm getting some if you can strike a good deal.

Wonderful silver artworks

by cadzand

The Chamundeswari Temple is a fine quadrangular structure with a high 'gopuram' (tower) and 'dwara' (entrance) which is a visible landmark from many miles.This is a wonderful silver statue of the goddess at the temple entrance door.

Jaganmohan Palace

by Willettsworld

The Jaganmohan Palace, which lies to the west of the Mysore Palace, was constructed in the year 1861 by the king, Krishnaraja Wodeyar III as an alternate retreat for the royal family. The Mysore Palace, which was the original home of the royal family, was burnt down in a fire and the construction of a new palace in its place was started in the year 1897. Till the new palace was completed in 1912, the Jaganmohan Palace was used by the royals as their home. In 1902, the king Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar was installed to the Mysore throne, in a ceremony that took place in a pavilion inside the Jaganmohan Palace. This ceremony was attended by Lord Curzon, the then Viceroy and Governor General of India. Today it houses one of the largest art galleries in Southern India.
