Things You Must Do On Your Trip To Mysuru

With its plethora of impeccable activities that Mysuru beholds, this place is an ideal destination for a vacation or a weekend escape for anyone and everyone. The grand city of Mysuru with its rich cultural heritage in art, architecture and history promises you a one of a kind experience that would render your trip into a memorable vacation. Here is a compact list of the top things you must do on your trip to Mysuru :

Mysuru Palace:

This royal residence is one of the most renowned sights in the country and is also known as the Ambavilas Palace. From its grand imperial interiors to its stunning Indo- Saracenic architecture, everything this grand palace beholds is a glimmering example of why Mysuru is famous as the City of Palaces. Be prepared to be awestruck and inspired by the rich history and architecture this place inculcates.

Chamundeshwari Temple :

As a valuable gem in Mysore’s crown, this religious hub attracts both pilgrims and tourists due to the artistic architecture this temple beholds. Sri Chamundeshwari Temple is located on top of the Chamundi Hills and portrays a fierce form of the awe- inspiring Goddess Durga.

Bandipur National Park :


This national park was established in 1974 with the second highest tiger population in India and is hence one of the most premier tiger reserves of the country registered under Project tiger. Famed as the Bandipur Tiger Reserve, this national park was previously a private hunting area for the Ruler of the Kingdom of Mysuru. Located in Gundlupet Taluk, at the district of Chamarajanagar, a part of this national park goes into the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, which makes it the largest protected area of South India and hence the largest inhabitant of wild elephants in South Asia. Tigers, leopards, chital, sloth bears, Indian elephants, sambar etc, alongside many more biomes, birds animals can be spotted in the Bandipur National Park.

Have A Taste Of The Famous Mysore Dosa And Mysore Pak :


Mysore Masala Dosa is one of the staples of the state, the special red spice mix spread on fillings of the dosa elevates the flavor and makes it stand out from your conventional dosa. It is best enjoyed crispy and served with a side of coconut chutney, sambar and ghee! Alongside that is the obnoxiously lip smacking Mysore Pak, being one of the most famous and mouth-watering sweet, this dessert is a dreamy concoction of sugar, ghee and gram flour and was first created in the Royal kitchens of the Mysuru Palace during the era of Raja Wadiyar IV. As an iconic dish in the Karnataka Cuisine, this dish is a staple favorite so the next time you find your way to Mysore, you simply cannot miss out on the Mysore Pak.

3d Selfie Gallery :


This three dimensional gallery is located in the Mysuru Sand Sculpture Museum and honestly comprises a sight that dreams are made of as you stand right in front of the art and have your pictures taken. This refreshingly unique place is extremely modern and unconventional compared to other tourist places and also allows you to have a lot of fun.
