The city of palaces, Mysore, is the second largest city in the Indian state of Karnataka. Located on the foothills of the majestic Chamundi Hills, Mysore is considered to be the one of the most well-planned and cleanest cities in the country. Adorned with a number of palaces, Mysore is the place that takes one back in time to the magnificent and affluent 'royal era of India'. The main attraction of Mysore is the Mysore Palace. A breathtaking assemblage of Indo-Saracenic, Hindu, Muslim, Rajput and Gothic architecture styles, this palace once served as the residence of the Wodeyars, the royal family who ruled Mysore for more than seven centuries. The Jagmohan Palace is another worth-visiting site in the city. This palace too served as the residence of the Wodeyar Kings, before the Mysore Palace was built. Today, it has been tastefully converted into an art gallery that displays one of the widest collections of artefacts and paintings in South India. Tourists will be amazed to know that there are nearly 180 parks and playgrounds in Mysore. One of the most popular among them is the Brindavan Gardens. Located in Mandya, this garden sprawls in an area of 60 acres land and is beautifully complemented with fountains.
