Mysore is the third largest city in Karnataka, South of India. It is located at 770 meters above sea level and is 140 kilometers from Bangalore, the state capital. Mysore city is also known as the City of Palaces and the Ivory City. Legend has it that Mysore was ruled by the demon-king Mahishasura, he was a buffalo-headed monster. Hence, came the name of this place Mahishuru, the city of demon Mahisha. The demon was killed by the Goddess Chamundeshwari, whose temple is situated atop the Chamundi Hills. Mahishuru later became Mahisuru and finally came to be called Maisuru, its present name in the Kannada language. The anglicized form of the name is Mysore. The weather is lovely almost throughout the year and surrounded by greenery.
After the old palace was partially destroyed by fire in 1897, the new Mysore Palace was built of granite on the old foundation. The palace has a gilded dome tower and is surrounded by a large courtyard. The architecture of the palace is amazing! Stained glass, intricately decorated domes, murals, beautiful doors, carved figures, and friezes are only of few of the captivating details.
One of the most prized possessions of the palace is the royal throne made of fig wood, ivory, gold, and silver that is only displayed during the Dasara celebration. Every Sunday night between 7-8 p.m. and during the 10-day Dussehra festival in October, Mysore Palace is lit up with thousands of white lights. Dussera festival also has a procession of elephants and a few cultural programmes in the evenings. The entry fee is different for foreigners and Indians, no shoes or cameras are allowed inside.
The hill takes its name from the goddess Chamundeshwari. It was the family deity of the royal family. This temple was renovated and the beautiful tall tower was built during the time of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III in 1827. Chamundi main hill features a long stone stairway leading to the top of the hill. There are 1,008 steps in all, with the first 600 steps being steeper than those higher up.
En route to the top, the steps pass the large statue of Nandi, the bull. The statue is about 16-feet high and 25-feet in length. Nandi is the vehicle of Lord Shiva. You can take a bus from the coconut stand to the city bus stand then transfer to another bus that takes you to the top of Chamundi Hill. Be sure to walk down the steps until the Nandi catching scenic glimpses on the way down.
You can take another bus from the Nandi to the city bus stand. Alternatively, you could hire a rickshaw all the way to the top and back. Take the steps to reach Nandi and ask the driver to pick you up from there, don't miss the steps and boulders. Come to an agreement over the fare beforehand. It is approximately 200 rupees one way.
Kere or lake is located on Mysore University campus and about seven kilometers away from Gokulam. This lake is home to more than 180 species of birds, some of them aquatic. During the migratory season the lake plays host to a variety of winged visitors, some from as far as Siberia. This lake is frequented by local fitness enthusiasts. The lake opens from 06:00-09:00 and 16:00-19:00.
This is a picturesque lake located in the footsteps of Chamundi Hills and behind Mysore Zoo. Karanji means fountain in Kannada. Spread over an area of 90 acres, it is regarded as one of the biggest lakes in Karnataka. Karanji Lake is home to more than 90 species of resident and migratory birds. It also supports several species of butterflies, small mammals and is a good example of wetland ecosystem.
The lake attracts painted storks, pelicans and darters and a host of other winged beauties. The most special reason to go and visit this place is to spend time in their walk-through aviary. They have a large number of peacocks and partridges and also the rarest white peacock. There is no pressure of limited timings, hence one can just sit and observe and if you are lucky you might just see the breathtakingly beautiful dance of the peacock, a pincha mayurasana!
Karanji also has boating facilities for 25 rupees per person and a butterfly park. If you are afraid of monkeys avoid the butterfly park. Another must-see place is the observation tower. You can get a panoramic view of the entire lake with its rich topography. If you own binoculars, this will take your experience to a whole new level.

The other way is to take a shuttle bus from the airport to transfer to Bangalore bus stand and to transfer to Mysore bus stand and finally transfer into an auto rickshaw to Gokulam.
