Tipu Sultan’s Palace

This is Tipu Sultan’s Palace, Seringapatam, Mysore.

You are not allowed to take photos inside the palace. The photo below is taken by standing outside looking in through the door (a bit naughty, I know, such a tourist I am). Inside are many intricate murals and stories told via paintings, art, colour, patterns and textures. It was quite mesmerizing! I have never seen so many different patterns and colours in one place.

Mysore Palace Light Show

Below are some photos from Mysore Palace. Most nights they put on a light show at the palace….it was amazing….you sit down and listen to a story (not in English) that is accompanied with music that corresponds with different lights displaying at different times. At the end of the story the coloured lights go and the whole palace lights up in the white lights for 3 minutes. The weather was perfect and the ambience was wonderful!
