📍Mysore, Jan 2019
Live Life King Size !!!! Mysore palace makes you understand what the person meant when he wrote this quote. The filthy rich kings of Mysore definitely knew how to live in luxury. From grand heavily decorated courtyards with giant chandeliers, golden and silver chairs, pure silver doors that opens super luxurious meeting places with pure teak carved celings they had it all....
قصر میسور که ساختش ۱۵ سال طول کشیده و ترکیبی از معماری هندی،اسلامی، راجپوت و گوتیک رو داره،دومین قصر پرجذبه هند هست.
هنوز هم پادشاه و خونواده سلطنتی شهر میسور در قسمتی از این قصر زندگی میکنن ولی قسمت بیشتری از این قصر در دست دولت هست و گردشگری.
این قصر با سه معبد هندو احاطه شده...
شهر میسور فاصله ۳ ساعتی با بنگلور داره و معروف هست به شهر باغ ها و قصر ها.جمعیت دینی هندو، مسلمان و مسیحی...
+عکسی که میبینید قسمتی از سرسرای قصر میسور هست.
Mysore palace finally!!! We were lucky to visit inside the palace,so don't be jealous of us 😛
On Tuesday we did lots of walking, 21km to be exact. We trekked up and down the 2000 steps of Chamundi Hill to see the temple at the top and the amazing views of Mysore, felt like being on top of the world. The monkeys also had a real thing for Jamie and his bottle, we were stalked but they were cute so was okay.

Mysore Palace, also known as Amba Vilas Palace, is a historical palace and a royal residence located at the heart of Mysore city, facing the Chamundi Hills eastward, in the Indian State of Karnataka. It is the official residence of the Wadiyar dynasty and the seat of the Kingdom of Mysore.
Although the original palace was built in the 14th century in the same location, the building standing there today was finished in 1912.
Displaying Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, this sprawling building is a replacement of the old wooden building destroyed by fire in late 19th century. Commissioned by the Krishnarajendra Wadiyar IV, this palatial building comprises of two durbar halls, a number of colossal courtyards, buildings and strikingly beautiful gardens that speak volumes of the splendour of the Wadiyars.
Referred to as the 'City of Palaces', Mysore houses seven other places, but none come close to awe-inspiring grandeur of this palace. Mysore Palace is counted amongst one of the biggest palaces in the country.
The palace has now been converted into a museum, which treasures the souvenirs, paintings, jewellery, royal costumes and other items, which were once possessed by the Wadiyas.

✘ The original palace burnt down in 1897 during the wedding of Jayalakshammanni, the eldest daughter of Chamaraja Wodeyar and was rebuilt in 1912. The present palace built in Indo-Saracenic style and blends together Hindu, Muslim, Rajput, and Gothic styles of architecture. It is a three-storied stone structure, with marble domes and a 145-ft five-storied tower. Above the central arch is an impressive sculpture of Gajalakshmi, the goddess of wealth, prosperity, good luck, and abundance with her elephants. Chamaraja Wodeyar
