Drop in Yoga classes in Mysore

by Brijette


I'm going to Mysore for a week in Feb. can anyone suggest any highly reccommended drop in yoga classes? I have made enquiries about quite a few and they all require a minimum of a months attendance. I'm keen but can't afford that amount of time there!

Any advice on a lone girl travelling from Bangalore to Mysore would be great too. Landing at 5am so thinking of getting the train...any tips?

This is Vijai from India. You will get a train from Bangalore city to Mysore. There are three trains departing after your flight. Presuming flight reaches at 6, you should take a pre paid cab from airport [tickets at arrival lounge at airport] to banglore city. It should cost about IRs 400.00 [UKP 5/-]. There are trains at 6.30, 7 and 7.35 [you should aim at last one]. It reaches Mysore at 10.45.
Alternatively you can get comfortable buses. If you want details, let me know at bond4you@vtmail.com I shall get all details.
for yoga see this site: http://mandala.ashtanga.org/index.php/yoga
Have a nice trip. If there is any way I could help you, do let me know.

Travel Tips for Mysore

Manufacturers - Tobacco

by SirRichard

In the city Tour I did with my kind taxi driver he took me to the old part of Mysore and showed me the daily work of some artisans, as this cigarettes maker. He worked all day sitting preparing this local cheap cigarettes, rolling tobacco leaf.

Somnathpur - Kesava Temple

by Willettsworld

Somnathpur is situated about 33km from Mysore and is where the you'll find the beautiful Kesava Temple. It was built in 1268 by Somanatha Dandanayaka, an illustrious general of the Hoysala king Narasimha III (1254-1291). The temple stands on a raised platform and is a perfect example of the Hoysala style of architecture. It has three sanctums to the west, south and north dedicated to Keshava, Venugopala and Janardhana. It is an ornately carved temple of magnificent craftsmanship depicting Vishnu, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ganesha, Ratimanmatha and Mahishasura - as many as 194 idols, of which 114 are female figures. The temple shrine is housed in the middle of a walled compound, around which runs an open verandah with 64 cells.

The temple is well worth a visit from Mysore, if you have the time. Take a bus from the main bus stand near the palace which costs Rs14.

Admission: Rs100.

St. Philomena's Church

by Skibbe

Modeled on the Cologne Cathedral, it has two 165 foot tall spires and houses the remains of 3rd century saint, Philomena. The current spot has housed a shrine since the mid-18th century but the current church was completed in 1941.

The Royal Throne

by SirRichard

Another highlight inside the palace is this captivating artwork with gold plates, which is displayed only during the Dasara festival. The Maharajas of Mysore used to sit on the golden throne and hold durbars in the Palace Durbar Hall.

Clock Tower & Surrounding

by muddybok

I didn't cover much at Mysore because I only manage to run of from my work slightly less than a month. For that reason, I visit only what I think it shall not be repeated on my other stopovers.

I didn't do much of temples probably because I already templed out at Hampi (one stop before this). Mysore is quite manageable by foot except those attractions that located far from town and I only did the Chamundi Hills just to while half a day at Mysore. Other time, I was slowly walking around town, buy bus tickets (to Ooty) and people watching in the late afternoon.

The clock tower located almost at the centre of the town and not far from all the cinemas and bus station. This particular cinema (see picture) boasts about the first in Mysore to have air conditioning. Me and my friend were thinking watching a hindi movie just to break our movie watching record in India, unfortunately we were deny enter to the cinema compound by some guys not wearing uniforms because our dinner served late. To them it must be quite big deal to watch a movie in the air conditioning cinema.

I don't even bother to argue with them that I only interest to enter and see some of their movie posters. So, I just take it very easy for the night, after all I am just waiting for the day break so that I can go photo shooting at the Flower & Veg Market.
