Full description
The tour starts with a pick up and drive to Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. Back in the 1700s, this palace used to be the summer residence of the Mysorean ruler, Tipu Sultan. Hear about Tipu Sultan and his rebellion against the British regime from your guide. Notice the Indo-Islamic architecture from up close before moving on to your next destination i.e. Mysore Palace. The Mysore Palace is the official residence of the Wadiyar dynasty in present times. This palace is a mix of Indian and Saracenic design. From the royal wedding hall to the museum, your guide will show you everywhere around the publicly open palace. Next up, you will stop by Chamundeshwari Temple. It is believed that Goddess Durga, a fierce form of Shakti, slayed demon king Mahishasura on this temple's spot. After seeking blessings at the temple, you will be served lunch on a traditional banana leaf. Then for the last part, you will see St. Philomena's Cathedral which is a remarkable gothic-style Catholic church built by the old Wadiyar king. You will be sent back to your hotel as the tour ends.

We had a fantastic time, and everything ran smoothly from the very start to the end. Our guide Shiva is a total gem! So much knowledge to share, and such a warm and kind personality. He goes out of his way to make you feel right at home in beautiful Mysore. Highly recommend as a day trip from Bangalore.

Enjoy the whole day!

Because I was not hungry, I did not need lunch, and when I returned from Mysore to Bangalore, I detoured to the temple of Somnathpur on the detour. Because it was a guide = 700 rupees, it was quite flexible. The souvenirs and people who are often on this type of tour were taken only once, but because they are in the city of Mysore, they have a little sense of time loss. I went to Bangalore traffic, but I feel better than Jakarta. So I enjoyed it. It's not on the water so you can buy it on the way, but don't forget.

Truly amazing tour - well run and very convenient

I had a great time touring the Mysore area with Vishnu as my guide. He did an outstanding job helping me to not only know about what I was looking at, but also to truly appreciate the historical and cultural significance of each location. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in expanding outside of the Bangalore area!
