Things to Do in Mysore

  • Folklore Museum

    Founded in the year 1968, Folklore Museum is one of Mysore's most popular tourist attractions. It mainly exhibits an expansive collection of artworks and crafts that belong to different parts of the state. It is located in the imposing Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion, which stands within the Mysore University Campus. Since its inception, the university has made immense contributions towards the folklore study.

    In this museum, there are around 6500 folklore articles on display, making it one of the biggest of its sorts in Asia. A collection of intricately carved wooden figures that have been collected from different villages of Karnataka can also be seen in this museum. Temple chariots, masks, costumes from Yakshagana plays and religious objects are among the museum's proud possessions.

    The museum is divided into different wings that are inter-connected by arched walkways. A beautiful fountain has been set in the courtyard that lies at the centre of the main hall. Graced with marvellous carvings, the interiors of this museum draw the attention of onlookers instantly.

  • Chamarajeshwara Temple

    Built in 1826, Chamarajeshwara Temple is an ancient shrine situated in the Chamarajanagar town in Karnataka. It is visited by a number of tourists and locals year-round. This shrine stands as a memorial of Sri Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar and was constructed by his son, Mummadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar. It is mostly noted for its enormous enclosure with golden pinnacles. The temple features two mantapams, namely the Muukha-Mantapa (an open pillared hall) and the Nandi Mantapam along with a sanctum - Garbagudi.

    The five-storey rajagopuram (the royal temple tower) rises up to a height of 70 feet from the base area of 232 x 195 sq ft. Adding beauty to the rajagopuram are five shining brass kalasha. At the main entrance of the temple, beautiful carvings of Lord Ganesha (on the left) and Goddess Chamundeshwari (on the right) can be seen. Also, at the doorway, visitors can see an idol of sitting Nandi (the mount of Lord Shiva), made of concrete.

    Beautiful motifs of gods and goddesses carved on the mantapams are absolutely beautiful. A huge wall surrounds the main temple, which comprises idols of several deities. There is also a Shiva Linga within the premises, which was brought from Sringeri. This linga was made by the blessings of the originator of Advaita Siddhanta, Adi Shankaracharya. Another highlight of this temple is the Navagrahas (the nine planets) set in front of the Shiva Temple, which looks marvellous during Amavasya (the new moon day).

    Paintings and stuccoed images of mythological scenes inspired from Girija Kalyana and Samudra Manthan at the temple are simply stunning. Rituals and special poojas are also conducted during festivals like Shivaratri and Girija Kalyana. In the month of July, Chamarajeshwaraswamy Rathayathra is organised here on a grand scale, which attracts a large number of devotees. There are stages on either side of the temple, where cultural fests are held during special occasions.
