The capital of the Wodeyars (Mysore) is about 140 Kms from Bangalore. Mysore is famous for Sandalwood and Silk. Countless lights decorate the city palace, which is compared with the Bunkingham palace in England. It also has a number of ancient Hindu temples and a few monuments built by the British. Mysore has changed very little since its days as the princely city that several royal families made their headquarters and were proud to call 'home'. The Maharajah's Palace has an ancient appearance. The palace is a surprisingly recent building, being constructed in 1911 to replace one that was partially burnt down. Illuminated by countless tiny lights on Sunday nights, the place is an outstanding piece of architecture.
