Mysore can sincerely be called as one of the most beautiful cities in the state of Karanataka. And that is mainly because of the beautiful palace that stands in the center of the city: Mysore Palace. This palace dates from 1900 and was built after the previous royal residence went up in smoke. Therefore, a visit to this beautiful building is not to be missed. Other attractions are colonial buildings such as the church St. Philomena and the Chamundeshwari Temple on the hill south of the city. From here you have a beautiful view of Mysore and its surroundings. Let’s go to Mysore!

Transportation – How to get to Mysore?


Mysore is located in the state of Karanataka. It has its own airport for domestic flights to Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad among others. If you come from Bangalore you can also take the bus. Many buses run daily between the two cities from the KSRTC (Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) between Mysore Road Satellite Bus Station, in southwestern Bangalore to the bus station in Mysore north of the palace. Another option is to take the train between the two cities, which puts you right in the center of both cities. The disadvantage is that the trains run less frequently each day.
