Visited the city of Mysore recently. One of the items to experience in Mysore was to see the lighting of the Mysore palace. Everyday at 7 PM, they light up the palace and it is a great experience to be there and see all these lights come alive.
The other thing that was not be missed was the Mysore Zoo. It is really well maintained. Has a lot of animals and birds. The animals seemed to be in great shape. The zoo opens at 9 AM till 5:30 PM. It is advisable to go there as soon as it opens, the animals are more active during the morning. Plastic items (covers and bottles) and selfie sticks are not allowed inside the zoo.
Mysore has an airport and a railway station. Shatabdi is a great train to travel in from Blore or Chennai.
We stayed in Pai Vista. Absolutely recommend it. Staff are friendly, Rooms are clean. Has a room service. Has a clean swimming pool too.
