I love palaces! I've seen some amazing ones over the years and I never get tired of them.
Why? Because each and every one of them is unique in some way. Usually, they are defined by the architecture and of course, the history.
The Mysore Palace was a standout for both of these reasons. At first sight, this incredible palace stands talls on a location that has seen four palaces built here.
Political upheaval, fire and even natural weather events like lightening strikes caused major damage to each of the palaces built over centuries. Each time one was destroyed, another was built to replace it, such is the importance of this building in Indian history.
Today, the beautiful palace we got to visit was completed in 1912 and designed by a British architect.
If I thought the outside was beautiful, I couldn't believe it when I got inside. It was a shame that it was so busy that I couldn't take the time to explore it more slowly.
Inside, the columns, ornate ceiling designs and large open spaces caught my eye immediately. I think I spent most of my time staring upwards, taking in all the colour and beauty of the Mysore Palace.
I'm travelling aboard the #goldenchariottrain as part of the #incredibleindia tour with a group of global travellers. Be sure to check them out too.
