The Bangalore Palace was the private residence of the royal Wodeyar family. Built to resemble Windsor Castle, this quirky palace is filled with an interesting and eclectic collection of art and paraphernalia from a bygone era. The palace grounds are a popular venue for rock concerts and other music events.

Not well maintained nor catalogued properly. At times the audio guides talk about stuff that's not there at all! Worthwhile to take the tour once. It is better to take a walk outside than pay the fees to go inside.

The exterior of the palace is beautiful but the interior was not much. Mysore palace (3 hours away) is less expensive but really beautiful and big!
