Mysore's leading sight in Mysore Palace, the former seat of the Wodeyar maharajas and one of India's grandest royal buildings, at least as spectacular when illuminated for a few hours in the evening as during the day. We took an audio guide tour of the palace's fantastic interiors, but this was another place where no photography was allowed and I don't have any pictures of the palace insides. ...
