Mysore Palace - 2 Sept
The palace is situated in the heart of the city. Unfortunately, one can't take cameras into the palace grounds so I only have pictures taken outside.
The palace grounds are huge, around 450 yards each side. The palace is on the left as you walk in through the south gate and on its grounds, you can find 8 different temples.
Inside the palace, are exhibits of European statuettes, lamps from the East, etc. along with paintings and murals of the royal family and Indian history.
My favourite part is the Durbar Hall on the first floor, where you will have a panoramic view of the palace grounds with its fountains and towers of temples.
After the palace, I was walking around the palace lawns when suddenly I became a tourist attraction. A group of boys from Kerala wanted to include me in the picture with them, so I obliged.
Oh, I forgot to mention that you will have to remove your shoes before you enter the palace. Luckily I was wearing a pair of socks with no holes in them. Which reminds me, I need to send my socks to the laundry now.
