Mysore - India
On the other hand Mysore maintains its colonial charm, dominated by the opulent Maharaja's Palace. Life in Mysore is relaxed, the markets and bazaars are legendary and the climate cooler than on the plains below.
Aside from the main palace, the folklore Museum with a wealth of carvings, puppets and ceremonial headwear, and the Jagamohan Palace are notable landmarks in Mysore. Mysore can be used as a base to explore Hoysala Temples, botanical gardens and a bird sanctuary.
