The palace looks like a mini castle in Europe. Apparently its based on Windsor Castle. The audio tour is extremely well managed and available in multiple languages. It provides great insight into the lives of the ruling family and the architecture of the region.

Keep ample time in hand when you plan to visit this place. It has enough to keep one engrossed for a couple of hours. While on a visit do remember to carry your ID card and definitely opt for the audio device or else you will be lost without understanding anything. Though they do ask for charges for camera if...

Quite small and appallingly run (join the ticket scrum wherever you like there's no attempt to keep order) this is certainly worth seeing. Good parking and the "castle" itself has quite a lot of artefacts on display. Upkeep coupld be better. Grounds were OK - former PM of India HK Dev Gowda was marrying off his grandson when we were...

This is a stone palace somewhat quiet similar to Windsor castle. The palace is surrounded by a vast garden of various species of trees. The palace holds unique about 30000 paintings. Visit for- Paintings in the palace, history of the palace and its association with Bengaluru.Ticket cost for Indian tourist is approx 250 rs.

Well, you would be lured to see the Palace of Bangalore. I mean why not, at least once? It belongs to the city. Well, we liked the exterior part more. Built just like castle. But more than history, it reflected a commercial place. There were some wedding arrangements in process. The entry ticket is little steeper. And double for the... More
