Full description
Enjoy a memorable day trip from crowded Bengaluru to the city of royalty. Start early from your hotel and relax on a 3.5-hour drive to Mysore. Your friendly local guide will walk you through the splendid buildings of the Mysore Palace and the Gothic-inspired St. Philomena's Cathedral. You will also have a chance to visit the Chamundeshwari Temple, located atop the Chamundi Hills, for a fascinating history of the people of Mysore. Start your day trip with an early morning pickup from your hotel. Sit back and relax on your drive to Mysore, which will take approximately 3-4 hours (depending on your pick up location and road conditions). Mysuru, formerly known as Mysore, is famous for its World Heritage buildings. Your first stop is the magnificent Mysuru Palace. Home of the Wodeyar dynasty, this grand palace is embellished with stained glass, majestic wooden doors, and intricate mosaic tiles. A fine collection of armors, sculptures, and paintings add to the glamour. Spend up to 1.5 hours exploring the Palace with your guide, building up an appetite for a traditional vegetarian lunch at a local's favorite spot. Next, head to the Chamundeswari Temple, located atop a hill. Dedicated to a form of Shakti, the goddess is revered by Hindus across the region. The location offers stunning views of the Karnataka countryside. Lastly, visit the St. Philomena's Cathedral which was built in 1941. Constructed in a Neo-Gothic style, its architecture is said to be inspired by the Cologne Cathedral in Germany and is one of the tallest churches in Asia. At the end of the tour, drive back towards Bengaluru where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 6:30-7 PM.

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!
