Ticket counter at Mysore Palace. Note the signboard with Palace opening timings and ticket costs.
Mysore Palace is open for visitors everyday from 10 am to 5.30 pm. There is no weekly off for Mysore Palace!
Palace illumination timings:
Saturdays : 7 pm to 7.30 pm
Sundays & Public Holidays :7pm-8pm
To see illumination no ticket is to be bought. Arrive a little early to settle at a vantage position. The charm is to be there when the palace is lit in one stroke, rather that arriving after the illumination is already on.
For both daytime visiting and illumination, entry is through the southern gateway.
Illumination seen from the north side of the Mysore Palace (New Statue Circle). Seen in the foreground is the white marble statue of Chamarajendra Wodeyar commissioned in 1920 ( so the name new statue!).
