We wanted to at least see the palace from the outside and considered the high entrance fee and decided not to enter. Impressive facade and small gardens in front. If you stand outside the fencing and are discreet, you can take some nice pictures. Our local guide discouraged an interior visit as it doesn't compare to Mysore. If you don't... More

The palace is really quite beautiful even upon approach. Once inside there are multiple types of architecture featured from traditional India to Tudor. You will also find a broad array of art reproductions throughout. Invest in the headphones that take you on a talking tour of the palace and inform you of the history. I would also pay the fee...

Really enjoyed the self-guided audio tour, with its well presented history of this quirky place. Gardens were a bit disappointing though. Lots of garbage strewn about.

A beautiful manor in style of Britain's Windsor Palace. Lovely architecture and palace grounds. Well maintained. Entry fees are a bit steep. But the recorded guided tour was good.

The Bangalore Palace is definitely a "must see". While it is not a typical Indian attraction, it is stuffed with the history of India and culture. The Palace is very well maintained and also occasionally serving as a venue for weddings. We witnessed one of those weddings during our visit, which was an amazing experience. I would definitely advise to... More
