The palace is full of exquisite stained-glass windows, glazed tile and amazing art. There are wonderful collections of gifts given to the Maharaja on display. The palace is completely walled on all sides. The interior of the palace is beyond description. It is absolutely amazing. It is full of all of the finest India has to offer. The palace still has many of the former King’s belongings.
There are four entrances creating a cross shape. The highlight of the week in Mysore is on Sunday evening, when the palace is completely lit, creating a beautiful sight. There are camel rides and elephant rides for hire on the palace grounds. It is required to remove shoes before entering the palace. No photography is allowed in the palace.
