Visit the Mysore Royal palace, located in the heart of the city. It is also known as Amba vilas palace and was the residence of Wodeyer Maharaja of Mysore. A fine example of Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, the palace has been converted into a museum that  exhibits souvenirs, paintings, royal costumes and other items, which were once possessed by the Wodeyars. After the visit enjoy lunch in a local restaurant with a fixed menu.  After lunch drive to Chamundeshwari Temple. It is located on the top of Chamundi Hills about 13 km from the palace city of Mysore. The temple has a seven storey tall Gopura decorated with intricate carvings. The deity of the goddess is said to be made of gold and the temple doors of silver. The temple was named after Chamundeshwari or Durga, the fierce form of Shakti, a tutelary deity held in reverence for centuries by Mysore Maharajas. After this visit, go back to Mysore and do not forget to see the Mysore city view from Chamundi Hill. While going back to Bangalore en route Visit Philomena's church.

Our guide was wonderful!

We did not realize it would be a 3.5-4 hour drive to Mysore from Bangalore. We thought we would spend more time touring. We have since learned there were many other things we could have visited along the journey. During our time in Mysore our guide was wonderful. We highly recommend this experience.

Guide très bon. Véhicule moyen. Trop de commerces

Le guide est excellent. Mais à l'instar de ses pairs, il a la désagréable habitude de nous conduire dans des boutiques pour touristes qui ne vendent rien d'intéressant, et à des prix prohibitifs. Une seule boutique est déjà lassant. Mais deux boutiques sont beaucoup trop. Par ailleurs, le véhicule est loin d'être assez confortable pour supporter 300 km de routes indiennes. Ceci étant, la visite de Mysore est absolument magnifique et vaut le déplacement.

Excellent

Very informative. Didn't like the shopping aspect of the tour as we were taken to a store that is quite expensive.
