Mysore Tours and Travels
Named after the mythical Mahisuru, where the goddess Chamundi slew the demon Mahishasura, Mysore is known throughout India for its production of silk and incense. The highlight of Mysore is the Maharaja’s Palace, the present one being completed in 1912 after the original palace burnt down in 1897. Stained glass, beautifully carved wooden doors and wild colours give the interior the ultimate sense of gradeur and extravagance. Within the grounds are Hindu temples, one of which has its own gopuram.Read More
