Best Period to Go:  Mysore! It is difficult to say if Mysore is a modern city that is trying hard to uphold traditions, or an old world city that tries even harder to wear a modern outlook. What ever is the truth, the word Mysore evokes a lot of anticipation. You can still anticipate a lot more, and Mysore has the character to match all those anticipations. And lastly Mysore won’t burn a big hole in your wallet. It is more likely the time that you will get hard pressed for, rather than the budget in exploring Mysore. This city is not a typical tourist trap, albeit the fact that it is a major destination ... More that attracts millions visit Mysore every year. As a tourist, it is very unlikely that you would go back unsatisfied. The Silver Jubilee clock tower was built in 1927 to commemorate the silver jubilee (25 years) of the rule of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore. The cost for this was shared by the palace staff of that era. The clock tower is also called Dodda gadiara , means the “big clock tower”, the “small clock tower” being the Dufferin Clock Tower located near KR Circle. This stands in a bustling area adjacent to Chamaraja Circle and the Town Hall. The ever busy Ashoka Road starts from this locality. So is the Sri Harsha Road along the parklane. A little north of the clock tower is the Gandhi Square. Built in the socalled Indo- Saracenic style, is clock 75 feet tall tower spots features from different architectural schools. The curvilinear chhajja ( overhanging eaves supported on carved brackets) is of Rajasthani tradition. The tall double arches and framing slit windows of early English church architecture. The 5feet diameter clock spots Kannada numerals.

Not to miss:  The Mysore Zoo is located on the exterior parts of the main city. The zoo is named as the “Chamarajendra Zoological gardens” but more popularly known as the “Mysore Zoo”. Most of the visitors make it a point not to miss.
The Ambavilas Palace or more popularly known as the Mysore Palace is one of the major tourist attraction in Mysore .
The palace was established in 1912. The architecture of the Mysore Palace is a total combination of the Gothic, Hindu, Rajput and Muslim fashion.
The Mysore Palace is a well build structure with magnificent ... More domes completely made out of pure marble. Vast gardens encircle the palace from all the sides.
During the festival of Dasara and Diwali the palace is totally illuminated with thousands of lights. This is the best time for tourists to visit Mysore.   
Also known as the “Doll’s Pavilion” the Gombe Thotti is a gallery for the collection of ancient doll’s which dates back to the 19th century.

General opinion:  Ranked as the second largest city in Karnataka, Mysore is one of the best places for tourist attraction for people from India and overseas.
According to the 2001 India census the population of Mysore was 799,228. The city is elevated at a height of 763 m above sea level.
Mysore is place of immense historic importance.
The city of Mysore is located at the foundation of the Chamundi hills.
Dasara, the festival of joy, celebrated in Mysore is one of the occasions which every tourist should make it a point to watch.
Mysore is also very famous ... More for its well known silk Saree which is exported throughout the world.
One thing that a visitor cannot miss is the local sweet dessert called the “Mysore Pak”.
Mysore is also home to numerous palaces and hence it is called the City of Palaces.
