In the history of Indian subcontinent right from its ancient times, the Mharajas of Mysore is probably the only monarchy that ruled a kingdom for over 500 years. Though with symbolical powers in the post independent India, the legacy of Mysore still continues. Mysore Palace is the seat of the Titular monarchy.

Doddakere

Doddakere is the place located right in front of Mysore Palace. Dodda Kere in Kannada means Big Tank or Big Lake. The fact is you would not find any such tank in front of the palace. All you can see is the creeping urbanization and some 'modern' structures on the lake bed of an erstwhile sprawling water body.
